Positive Futures

This is a national sports-based social inclusion programme, funded by the Home Office, aimed at marginalised 10 to 19-year-olds in the most deprived areas.

By engaging marginalised young people in sport and other activities, They aim to build relationships between responsible adults and young people based on mutual trust and respect, in order to create new opportunities for alternative lifestyles.

The programme aims to use sport as a catalyst to encourage participants to make decisions for themselves, and to take self-determined steps towards a positive future. Steering young people towards educational and employment opportunities is at the heart of the programme's agenda.

Projects

The projects involve:

  • Outreach and detached work to contact young people at risk of exclusion.
     
  • Coaching skills across a range of sports.
     
  • Opportunities to play competitively in newly established or existing sports clubs.
     
  • Education programmes, including the British Sports Trust and Open College Network courses.
     
  • Leadership skills and mentoring programmes.
     
  • Opportunities for volunteering, casual and part time work and pathways to full time employment.
