Making Aylesbury Vale the best possible place to live and work
The project wants to provide new opportunities for all young people through free and subsidised coaching in a variety of sports and activities across Aylesbury Vale. We will deliver 6 to 8 week taster sport and physical activity projects offering affordable activities for local residents. Across Aylesbury Vale we will deliver 8 blocks of 6 to 8 week sport and activity sessions. Guiding young people to regularly participate in sport or activity sessions in their local community. Particularly engaging with under represented groups via projects specifically designed to engage females, BAME participants, faith groups and disabled young people. The project will challenge growing social issues in Aylesbury Vale by designing projects that can help tackle anti-social behaviour, community integration, obesity and mental health issues. The project will involve community participation to promote, develop and educate within the areas of health & wellbeing, recreation and sport.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We know from research that embedding good habits and changing behaviours towards activity needs to be done during early life. Not only will our projects increase participation in sport and activity for these young people, they bring about positive social change, improve health and well being, thus reducing pressure long term on local health services. The emphasis on our projects is to create strong communities involving community participation within Aylesbury Vale by removing barriers and providing opportunities to empower young residents to get and stay active. We will deliver 6 to 8 week taster sport and physical activity projects offering sustainability and affordability for residents. We will be working with our extensive network of quality partners, scaling up projects that have worked elsewhere, have been sustainable and show evidence of behaviour change. Projects will cover a wide range of activities suited to each local area and linking with local clubs or organisation.
Steps to get it done:
The project will help 8 communities in Aylesbury Vale. The project areas will be based on the identified areas of activity need. To build a detailed understanding of activity need, Leap has identified the top 30 priority ward areas in terms of ‘inactivity risk’ which will be our focus to tackle inactivity across Bucks & MK. Leap will look to deliver the activities in these areas in Aylesbury Vale along with on local support and need. The areas in Aylesbury Vale are: Southcourt Elmhurst Riverside Gatehouse Walton Court & Hawkslade Central & Walton Grendon Underwood & Brill Tingewick The project is innovative and will benefit the local communities and particularly the fund criteria Community engagement and regeneration.
