Boxing4Life is a grassroots boxing club for 8-18 year olds, based in Leytonstone and active in Waltham Forest.  We use non-contact boxing to give young people new physical skills, and to help them develop their social and emotional skills.

Formed in 2009 as a community response to a teenage murder, Boxing4Life was initially financed by the Home Office through the Communities Against Gangs, Guns and Knives Fund.  We are a registered charity, supported by organisations like BBC’s Children In Need and The National Lottery.
