I built a bike for the first time; the workshops gave me the confidence to study mechanics at college.
Sailing was amazing, there’s more to it than just steering a boat.
Coming to the youth club is good, I chill with friends & it’s safe.
The careers workshops helped me to decide which course to do at college.
Loved the residential. Tree trekking, paintballing & quad biking, being independent and first time for all of us!
For the first time I got to play Futsal, new rules & faster pace. I really improved my game.
We have helped over 6,000 young people through direct support, intervention and development.
What we do
With over 40 years of experience in providing sport & youth services, we have established our unique youth development programme encompassing 4C’s –
Connection, Confidence, Character and Contribution.
We use sport, youthwork, mentoring & media to improve the lives of young people, with a focus on those who live in areas with high levels of crime, antisocial behaviour and deprivation.
4C’s has been designed to bring out the best in young people by providing them with high-quality sports sessions, mentoring & guidance – preparing young people to make that ‘next’ step. Improving their employability, key life skills and facilitating the transition into sustained education, employment and/ or training.
We believe positive bonds between young people and youth workers/ coaches are key. This built-up trust supports young people to connect with their local community – including other young people, teachers, schools, colleges and local businesses. By bridging the gaps in local society through positive activity, community activism and intergenerational work, we create a safe environment for young people to develop and grow.
