Interested in finding out more about A Sporting Chance?
In the last two years we piloted this programme in Allerdale, Copeland and Carlisle (see case studies) with remarkable results for the young people. The young people who take part are at risk of dropping out of school and becoming disengaged and disaffected or they are unemployed and not engaged in learning.
The programme uses sport as the hook to get them involved and motivated. When recruited the young people undertake a voluntary sports placement within their local community. They positively contribute within their local community whilst gaining qualifications and improving their employability. The programme works on the ethos of put something in and get something back.
