The purpose of the project is to deliver a targeted youth engagement multi-sport activity programme in and around Sutton Ward in Hull, responding to a need for youth engagement identified by the Sutton Ward East Area Neighbourhood Team, Ward Councillors and Youth Development Service. Target areas include Barbara Robson Park and the green space running parallel to Sutton Road near Dorchester Road.
The activity programme, which uses sports and leisure as a tool, aims to positively engage a minimum of 40 children aged 8 and upwards (up to 25 with SEN).
The programme is running over 35 weeks, providing at least 2 x 1.5 hours evening sessions in each target area of high deprivation. The programme will be flexible and respond to identified hotspots – working closely with the neighbourhood team, youth services, police and social services to determine where delivery is best positioned and moving as required.
