We believe that engagement through sports delivered in the community can support young people and help them grow and develop into responsible adults, contributing to society.
The Youth, Community & Schools Team help to support young people aged between 8 - 24 years old, through various youth engagement programmes. Engagement is centred around providing sporting activities, guidance and practical advice on healthy living.
We worked in partnership with and were funded by, Warwickshire Police & Crime Commissioner and utilised police intelligence to support positive behaviour in identified locations. These sessions happened at various Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) in Nuneaton and Bedworth.
By engaging young people is ‘street sports’ the aim was to assist in reducing alcohol and substance misuse. Also to assist in the reduction of anti-social behaviour and nuisance crime in our communities.
Our expert sports and community coaches also work with group & individual referrals to support young people through sport & health. They also provided advice and directed young people to local sports clubs and activities which were available to them.
