Oarsome Chance...

... a ground-breaking new charity

Oarsome Chance is bringing about change for disadvantaged young people in the Portsmouth, Gosport and Havant areas by using the powerful incentive of sport in combination with vocational training.

Oarsome Chance develop programmes to benefit educational and employability outcomes for young people through practical, vocational education and the sport of coastal rowing.

Our mission

Oarsome Chance focuses on young people aged from 9 -19 years old who are disengaged from mainstream education and are at risk of exclusion and suffering disadvantage.

In its first year, Oarsome Chance has already engaged with over 1500 participants through its rowing and workshop programmes.
