Empire Fighting Chance
Empire Fighting Chance is a Bristol-based charity that engages at-risk young people through non-contact boxing, underpinned by tailored support focused on education, well-being and employability. The results are remarkable: by the end of their engagement with Empire Fighting Chance, 92% of young people have improved school attendance, 88% are no longer at risk of exclusion and 90% have increased aspirations. Funding from The Fore will enable Empire Fighting Chance to take its first step toward scaling by expanding into a second site, in neighbouring South Wales.
