Leicester Fundraising stage

days left

Pledges will only be charged if the project hits its funding goal of £11,101 by 23 Oct 2020

We would like to develop our premised so that we can provide a safe space for children and youth. They will be able to use the facilities for sports, recreational area and provide educational classes. We would also like to redevelop the washroom facilities so that people can use washroom facilities after games and sports. Finally, we would like to purchase sports equipment for people to use and this will increase their motivation, self-esteem, health & well being and overall life expectancy.

What we'll deliver:

  • New sports facilities and safe play area
  • Provide support for health and well being
  • upgrade washroom area for people to use after sports

Why it's a great idea:

We have had a huge demand within the local community to provide an area where people can come and play sports and general safe space/hang out area. This means that the youth will be in an area where they will not be involved in knife crime, theft, vandalism and drugs. We hope to support around 500 children and youth initially. The areas we work in are the most socially deprived in the city and we reach a wide demographic within the BAME community. Here is a snapshot of the pressing needs of our service users: High levels of at-risk behaviours presenting in 14-18-year-olds. This group need to be supported to stay safe, avoid crime, avoid substance abuse, manage behaviour, and build coping mechanisms. Violent crime is a serious community problem with knife crime convictions jumping 42% in Leicestershire between 2016/2017 and 2017/2018. High levels of child poverty - 44% of Leicester residents live in the 20% most deprived areas in England (Leicester City Council statistics)

Steps to get it done:

  • We will increase the no of activities from its current provisions to 8-10
  • the no of people participating will be approx 100.
  • Our volunteers will increase from 2 to 15 by end of next year
  • we will deliver several courses / CPD to all staff

We will also hold regular classes to create awareness of crime, drugs and promote our volunteering initiatives. We also provide support for people to get into further education and also support people into getting into employment.
