London Sport Launched a New Urban Sport Project

London Sport have launched a new initiative- Urban Sport project- to get more young (u25) Londoners physically active in urban spaces. They are looking to work with partners, to create new opportunities to get inactive young people moving more outside of traditional sports and leisure settings.

The initiative includes:

• Building knowledge through tasters

• Identifying appropriate local urban spaces

• Working with young people to design fun activities

• Support groups to apply for funding for training and equipment to keep going

The definition of sport is very open and can be anything that gets people moving and active i.e. street dance. London Sport will work with an organisation/ young people to develop ideas and can provide support to get projects up and running, as well as ongoing training opportunities and support with funding applications. If you are interested in getting involved with the project, please contact john.arthur@londonsport.org for more information.
