Our Model
We use the power of sport & play, mainly football to engage with young people and build trust so we can use the power of relationship to embed our life changing interventions.
Stage 1: Self referrals or referred to our sport programme
Stage 2: Young person and support worker mentoring support
Stage 3: Life changing intervention as a result of agreed issues to address during mentoring
We use the three stages to monitor every participants change changing outcomes and 80% of participants are welcome to continue our weekly sport & play activities.
