Carney’s Community, a registered charity, exists to support young people and targets
its resources towards those who are involved in the criminal justice system, impacted
by gun and knife crime, excluded from school or who have adverse childhood experiences.


Carney’s Community is inspired by Mick Carney, the boxing legend who motivated and turned around many lives through engagement with boxing.

Mick introduced youth worker George Turner to boxing coach Mark Reigate and together they founded Carney’s Community in 2011.
