What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
When I was younger I had my own experience of all these things, personally or through friends. The sport of football and some great mentors and organisations helped me turn my life around to become a fully certificated football coach. I want other young people to have the chance I did. The BBC report knife crime has risen to 82% involving teenagers under 18 wounded or killed. Using group discussions and engaging with other organisations, like Outside Chance, providing support for the young people we aim to reduce incidences. Mental health and lack of confidence is common in young people. Talking openly in a “safe” group, united as a team, we can help improve self-worth, knowledge and understanding of mental health issues. We will also signpost individuals if necessary. Physical activity to promote a healthy lifestyle, using football to improve fitness, skills, teamwork and social skills. It’s been shown football also works well for mental health conditions like schizophrenia.
