Centre 63 Finding for a sports coach and workshop facilitator. There has been some really significant differences that have occurred, as a direct result young people engaging with the project. First of all we saw a dramatic change in the amount of physical activity and exercise, that our young people were completing on a weekly basis.,Another difference that we have seen is in the increased numeracy and literacy levels of the young people, not only in their ability but also their confidence. It has been so beneficial to have been supported by the 23 Foundation and this will lead to a bigger and more sustainable approach in terms of sport and leadership training.
