About Us

Who we are

BoxUpCrime is a social youth organisation operating out of the London borough Barking and Dagenham. We work with young people at risk of having their lives ruined by crime and motivate them to rebuild and recapture their dreams and aspirations. We believe that every young person is entitled to a bright future, inspired by their hopes and dreams, regardless of their background. We deliver our tailored sessions to schools, Pupil referral units and community centres across London. In our weekly sessions, we offer a foundation of discipline through engaging boxing training, educational programmes and mentoring. We provide young people job opportunities and apprenticeships as a stepping stone to their future.


An international youth led community, rebuilding misguided dreams through harnessing talents of young people.


Provide the opportunity and resources in order to help all young people discover a true sense of self identity as well as guiding them to develop self-motivation strategies. Once being equipped with this, it will allow them to go on to self-fulfilment, making a successful life accessible, and ultimately decreasing and preventing the chance of them becoming a victim of senseless murders and going to prison.

”The coaches and athletes made me feel like I was part of the box by helping and cheering me on and that was the case for everyone”

Ian Gibson

”This place is the bomb! Their coaches make sure you have the proper form and are always pushing you to go further.”
