Location

  • Matthew was happy to be given the chance to join the programme. He is loving football and his grades in English & Maths have improved and he has had less trouble at school.

    — parent of a young person who completed the programme

  • I was dubious about attending the course at first, because I didn't know anybody and that took me out of my comfort zone. I didn't need to worry, the team were as friendly and helpful as I could imagine. They helped me with my football skills and gave me loads of confidence.

Situation

The slide into Anti-social behaviour and further criminal activity by young people who have been marginalised in their communities, excluded from school or have family issues that are contributing to their behaviour.

Solution

We use structured sports programmes to build self-discipline and provide role models and new peer groups for the young people. In many cases the chance to succeed is more valuable than any other interventions they have had in the past.
