More than Sport.

Description:

More than Sport is a West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner funded diversionary project that uses the power of sport and volunteering within the local sporting network to make a positive impact on the lives of young people aged 13-24 within Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin who are in, or at risk of being involved in, the Criminal Justice System.

More than Sport supports individual referrals through a journey that can:

  •  increase their confidence, motivation, aspiration and self-esteem
  •  improve their emotional and physical well-being
  •  reduce their risk of entering the Criminal Justice System
  •  help them re-integrate into their community
  •  enable them to be ‘life ready’

More than Sport isn’t just about participating in sport itself. It’s about providing young people with alternative volunteering opportunities within the local community network that match their interests. From construction or catering to grounds maintenance or media, all options can be explored.
