Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is working with community partners to launch two new, multi-sport projects, aiming to combat anti-social behaviour throughout the district.
See below for more information regarding each project…
Ahead of the game
Ahead of the Game is aimed at deterring kids – aged between 10 and 13 – from low-level crime and anti-social behaviour.
Working closely with police neighbourhood teams in Eastmoor, Lupset and Hemsworth – three hotspot areas in Wakefield – 15 sessions [one per week] will be run, which will consist of a one-hour, multi-sport workshop designed to build relationships and cohesion with the young people attending.
Participants will be able to access a range of different sports with sessions led by qualified coaches from the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation.
Play 2 Potential
Play 2 Potential has been brought in to support young people – aged between 14 and 16 – living within the Eastmoor, Lupset, and Hemsworth areas of Wakefield.
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in positive activities, which promotes physical and mental health, whilst diverting them away from participating in criminal acts.
With many physical and mental benefits already well-reported, the project will empower young people to develop new social connections and awareness of strategies that can help them maintain positive mental resilience.
The opportunity to participate in multi-sports activities will act as the catalyst to engage the young people in wider conversations about healthy lifestyles and risk-taking behaviour.
Our delivery team is experienced in developing positive relationships and using sport, participants will gain a positive mindset where they are more receptive to taking on the information.
Throughout this process, young people will be more aware of the consequences of negative actions, effects of substance misuse, and knife crime.
