Project name: CashBack Community of Basketball (including Schools of Basketball)
Age range: 10 – 17 years
Number of Young People Project expects to work with: 1308
Our project focus is to contribute to the development of a community of young people who, by engaging in activities that improve their physical, mental and social health, build resilience against antisocial behaviour and involvement in the justice system.
Our project takes two approaches:
Firstly, a targeted “Youth Work through Sport” approach designed to engage a core group of 48 targeted young people with adverse childhood experiences in each of the three partner schools with interventions which target the development of resilience factors, including:
- 1-to-1 and small group support from a youth worker
- Personal development planning
- Engagement in positive sport and physical activities
- Increasing understanding of mental health and wellbeing and how to positively impact this.
- Attainment of additional qualifications to support progress to positive destinations
- Support to engage in positive alternatives to anti-social behaviour outside of school
Secondly, we will work with a wider group of 1260 young people across our target high schools and the local primary schools to deliver positive activity with embedded mental wellbeing messaging designed to improve emotional literacy. We will provide a range of opportunities for these young people to engage in positive activity in their community.
