Inspire to Change

The 'Inspire to Change' project collaborates with young people identified by partner agencies. The scheme allows vulnerable young people succumbing to the criminal justice system, to connect with community-based sport organisations, who conduct specific district wide support for children and young people.

The Inspire to Change programme will be open to those aged between 10 – 18 years old (25 years old if a SEN is identified).
