Empowr-U have been funded by the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner to deliver a project aimed at those in Nuneaton and Bedworth, which is designed to increase health, wellbeing, confidence and social skills; using sport as a vehicle.
Life Skills Through Sports involves a range of fun sport and physical activities alongside workshops, mentoring and leadership opportunities for children and young people aged between 10 and 14.
The programme will help children set goals, build future ambition and feel more resilient in achieving them.
Each participant will gain a certificate to recognise their achievements on the programme, and we also aim to run an awards presentation on the last week of the programme.
Each place is fully funded, and therefore at no cost to participants. Participants will need to attend in clothes and footwear that they are comfortable to move in and food will be provided.
Staff will be DBS covered and are experienced in working with children and young people in a variety of settings and environments.
