Sky Sports and the Youth Sport Trust have launched their new Sky Sports Living for Sport website, a free initiative for all secondary school that uses sport stars and sport skills to improve the lives of young people across the UK.

The new website was designed, built and is now hosted by Bristol based user experience design agency, Nomensa.

Nomensa worked collaboratively with Sky to ensure that the website was built with their core goals for the project at its foundation. With a user-centred design approach to website design projects, Nomensa were the perfect design partners, creating a website to inspire young people to get involved in the project.

Sky Sports Living for Sport is an initiative for secondary schools that uses sport to boost confidence, change behaviours, increase attainment and improve life skills. The scheme has been extremely successful since launching seeing the young people involved experiencing an 88% positive improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem.
