Switch Up

Switch Up and the Nottingham School of Boxing provide individual, life changing support to young people in communities affected by crime and violence. Through sport, mentoring and personal development, we improve their mental and physical wellbeing to give them the skills, confidence and motivation to realise their true potential.

Chief Executive Marcellus Baz BEM was born in a deprived area of Nottingham and groomed into criminality before dedicating his life to supporting communities affected by crime and violence.
