We are passionate about child development and as well as organising Kings Camps in the UK, we work with communities, volunteers and young people across the world. Our Kings Volunteer programme demonstrates the emotional, physical and spiritual benefits of sport and we have seen first-hand the positive impact sport can have on children’s lives.
From inner-city UK to remote parts of Africa, Kings Volunteer enables local volunteers to support children in their communities. With Kings’ know-how and our unique Base Pack, we are enriching the lives of more and more children and young people.

How your support helps
Creating a happier, healthier Hull
Kings Volunteer has joined together with local doctors, a network of primary schools and a group of volunteers of Hymers College in Hull to create a ground-breaking partnership.
Kings Volunteer trained and equipped Upper-6th Form students from Hymers College to deliver engaging sports programmes in primary schools across the city. Using our Base Packs, the sessions encourage young children in the city to lead healthy, happy and active lives.
Teachers have been amazed at how the multi-activity, high energy approach has had an infectious affect on children – with everyone joining in the fun, whatever their ability or affinity with sport.
Reaching villages across Africa
Kings Volunteer works with over 150 local volunteers across a range of countries including Uganda, Botswana, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa and Kenya.
In Swaziland, life can be difficult for girls and young women, where violence is a major problem for many. For the last 20 years, SWAGAA (Swaziland Action Group Against Abuse) has been working tirelessly to end gender-based violence. Kings Volunteer provided Base Packs and training to SWAGAA to use as part of their Girls Empowerment Clubs, which offer support, counselling and an environment to discuss their rights, experiences and dreams.
The Base Packs are being used to break down gender barriers to sport, and give young girls the opportunity to be active, have fun and learn together in a safe environment.
