Breaking Barriers (360G-CR-2280612)
This project will work in three areas of the UK in which young people are growing-up in communities that lack cohesion. Its work in Tower Hamlets will look at gang tensions; its work in Belfast will tackle religious divides; and in the Welsh Valleys the focus will be on giving young people back a stake in the community. The project will begin by delivering sporting activities through street-work (i.e. football within a housing estate) and then seek to engage these young people in helping to run the sessions, in training, and in volunteering. The grant will cover the costs of youth workers and training for the young participants. The grant will support young people to be active citizens.
