This will be a 16 week project where the sports aspect will include table tennis, football skills, and badminton aiming to widen reach and to increase participation by young people aged 8-18.
The activities would also support a reduction in anti-social behaviour and get young people using their local community youth club THE CREZ. The group work project will also be 16 weeks and cover mental health awareness and coping strategies for young people.
