The Lord's Taverners is accredited by the England & Wales Cricket Board as the official national charity for recreational cricket.

The Lord’s Taverners is dedicated to giving young people a sporting chance -  by enhancing the prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people using cricket and other forms of sport and recreation to engage with them.

• Encouraging participation in youth cricket, particularly in disadvantaged areas – providing grants towards non-turf pitches, funding for youth cricket competitions and donating hundreds of cricket bags to clubs and school teams across the UK.

• Supporting recreational and sporting activities for youngsters with special needs – donating specially adapted minibuses and sports wheelchairs giving young people vital transportation and access to sport, and providing grants for sensory, play and sports equipment.
