Sport England Families Fund – What’s Your Game

What's Your Game? is a four-year family project that aims to work with 640 families with children aged 5-10 to improve and increase their levels of physical fitness in Sheffield, Hull, East Cambridgeshire and Torbay. Community facilitators will be working in these areas, connecting and building relationships with local families to help deliver local solutions.

We want families to tell us what makes a good place to live, what does the community do to improve things in their area, what kinds of things do residents do to help each other, what are the things that help residents to feel independent and in control and what helps residents to feel connected and sociable?

Through a unique community organising approach this project will capture people’s willingness to share, give their time and create solutions around increasing opportunities to improve physical activity, in a fun and meaningful way that will ultimately deliver good things in our neighbourhoods. This gentle informal approach can deliver real results and focuses on what communities do have rather than what they don’t, building on local assets either through people’s will, local facilities or both.

Youth Project - Get On Track

We are proud to be working in partnership with Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, a charity set up in 2008 by double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes. It supports retired athletes as they transition from sport, and uses their skills and experience to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people through mentoring programmes.

This impactful project will help our young residents in supported living in Weston-super-Mare, Banbury, Brighton & Hove, Hartlepool and Stockton on Tees to become ‘work-ready’ by developing work-related knowledge, qualifications, and building soft skills.
