In partnership with SPACE 2020, Engage Communities delivered a successful summer programme, re-starting activity in 10 areas across the city following lockdown. Over 200 young people took part in FREE weekly sports sessions including football, street cricket and boxing. Due to COVID guidelines sessions took place in parks and multi-use games areas (MUGAs) with restricted numbers at each session. After a sustained period of isolation following lockdown it was important that young people re-connected with their friends and improved their physical and mental wellbeing. As a result of attending our summer programme 86% of participants feel healthier, 77% feel they get on better with people from other backgrounds, and 79% feel they deal with stressful situations better.
Most people pay to play sports and we have it for free on our own doorstep!
I’m glad Engage have restarted sport at Parkhouse Street, we all need get back to normal after COVID.
I really like this session as i get to play football & cricket at the same time.
I’m really looking forward to this session again, it was so boring staying at home during lockdown.
Yes, you are back!
