Switch Up works in Nottingham with young people who are at risk of or already involved with gang and criminal activity. It uses a combination of sports, peer mentoring and coaching to help transform lives through a move away from offending behaviour. Funding supports the Operations and Development Manager to improve organisational systems and processes, in particular more effective management systems, monitoring and evaluation, and communications, and increase fundraising capacity. This will make it better able to articulate impact and enhance its influencing and fundraising.
This Bristol-based charity uses non-contact boxing and intensive individual support to inspire vulnerable young people to make positive changes in their lives and improve their mental health. It will grow its impact by replicating its approach (starting in Wales); raising awareness and spreading learning, especially around the power of sports and coaching to address mental health needs; and diversifying income streams for greater sustainability.
