We successfully engaged 250 inactive young women and girls aged 15-25, focusing on groups with limited access to sport and physical activity.
Our programme was built around a network of local community partners, ranging from Boxing4Schools to Bromley Family Nurse Partnership. Activities spanned from boxing, to dance, to swimming, with the aim of engaging young women in a relaxed, safe and nurturing environment. Our programme was delivered by fully qualified coaches and we recruited and trained a team of female champions to act as mentors, ambassadors and role models for their peers.
The outcome has been exceptional, with findings showing a significant impact on participants’ physical activity levels and their overall wellbeing six months after completion of the programme.
