Since January 2020 we have delivered satellite youth provision out of disused community facilities on two estates in Norwood, Lambeth, where young people (YP) told us they are too scared to travel to our existing nearby provision because of fear of being stabbed. YP have access to multi-sports, and activities which address barriers to learning, mental health support, community safety and other positive activities in safe spaces near where they live – three days per week after school during term time. The project is intended as an early intervention to prevent the escalating youth violence incidents from rising further.
We provide an accessible term time programme offering YP the opportunity to access positive, flexible and safe activities close to where they live. Sessions take place after school between 3.30 – 6.30pm, three nights per week, two evenings at a location at Central Hill, and one evening near Gypsy Hill.
We utilise underused community multi-use Games Area’s (MUGA’s) and indoor provision to deliver activities to YP aged 11-19. Activities will are split between 11-16 and 16+ age groups.
We work in partnership with the Fulham Football Club Foundation (FFCF) to deliver the sports activities. The multi-sports offer comprises tennis, football, basketball, rounders, cricket and non-contact boxing. YP are offered the opportunity to gain sports coaching accreditation
