The Flames programme aims to up skill young leaders to plan and deliver enjoyable health and physical activity sessions with underpinning Olympic and Paralympic Values to local primary school aged children.

Loughborough Flames: Lighting the Way was one of the first initiatives to be awarded the coveted Inspire Mark logo and is coordinated by Loughborough College in partnership with the British Heart Foundation National Centre, which provides training and resources for implementing the programme.

The Flames programme is now available to all Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges across the UK, for delivery through either the BTEC National Diploma in Sport, BTEC National Award In Sport or the Level 2 Community Sports Leadership Award.

Right To Play, the world’s leading sport for development charity, is an international organisation that works to improve the lives of children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world. Through playing games and sport, Right To Play delivers lessons on education, health and peace. Born from the Olympic movement, the organisation was formerly known as Olympic Aid and is a delivery partner for the London 2012 International Inspiration programme.

Right To Play currently has a team of more than 100 Student Ambassadors at 50 universities around the UK, and would love you to join their ever-growing team of dedicated, passionate and innovative students who are keen to do more with their time. You can join in too, and help to change lives.

Student Ambassadors raise awareness and money for Right To Play by running events, linking with sports clubs and societies and supporting national events and campaigns. The Student Ambassador programme gives you a chance to represent and promote an international nongovernmental organisation (NGO) at your university, alongside a team of Athlete Ambassadors, staff and children who benefit from Right To Play programmes.

Right To Play is the official charity of British Universities & Colleges Sport and over the last two years has raised enough money to fund 20,000 children in Right To Play programmes.
