Providing opportunities for young people ages 14-21 to participate in sport and social activities. The main thrust of this programme is to engage with young people who might never engage in sport, through a programme that encourages groups to socialise and build friendships alongside having access to sport and fun activities. This is a 3 year Sport England funded project.
