We are based in Walsall, which geographically, is an area of high deprivation.. Therefore, A&A Services created a safe space for individuals from a LGBTQ+ and BAME background, providing social support to these particular groups who experience loneliness, isolation and disconnection from the community. Therefore, we are offering individuals an opportunity to engage with sporting activities in a safe and comfortable environment. We will offer activities such as: rounders, football, badminton, Zumba and dance. Activities will be carried out indoors in our office location, as well as outdoors in the local park. Also, we also want to give individuals the opportunity to also take part in gardening activities such as flower arrangement, watering and taking care of the plants etc. Furthermore, we will be offering indoor activities such as arts and craft workshops, karaoke, boardgames and puzzle, talk therapy.

What we'll deliver:

  • Organise regular outdoor activities
  • Offer a safe space for the local community
  • Promote social cohesion
  • regular in door activities

Why it's a great idea:

Our project will promote inclusivity and social cohesion by offering sporting and gardening activities in the heart of our community for a vulnerable group wanting to expand their social circles in a safe environment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Create outdoor space.
  • Purchase equipment.
