Sport and Youth Justice Practitioner Engagement Day
The event aims to explore the challenges to creating a robust and fit for purpose referral framework across Durham and Darlington that would see vulnerable young people being referred into appropriate physical activity environments. The event will be delivered in partnership with national charity StreetGames and will bring together partners from across youth justice, community safety and community sports sector, to address the challenges and identify solutions.
The main aims of the day will be to work towards the development of a toolkit which could be used by sports development and youth justice workers to encourage the use of sport in the desistance of offending. Once piloted and developed it is intended that this rolled out nationally.
