Carney's Community, a registered charity, gets disadvantaged and excluded
young people off the street and away from a life of crime and despair by
giving them skills, discipline and self respect.


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.
