Street Sports 2014Main

Street Sports is a Hounslow based social inclusion project, initially launched in September 2010.

Supported by Hounslow Homes, the project is based on 7 estates - Heston Farm, Redwood, Harlech Gardens, Watermead, Brabazon Road, Ivybridge and Brent Lea. Regular positive sports and activity sessions are delivered aimed at engaging young people with the Trust and helping to create safer and more respectful communities through the nurturing and development of young people’s potential.

The project delivers 15 hours of provision, 36 weeks of the year. Activities include football, boxing, ultimate Frisbee, street athletics, youth clubs, bike maintenance and educational workshops. All of these sessions are free of charge and delivered by Trust coaching staff within Hounslow Homes estates.

The project also helps build relationships between the police and young people. Regular interaction between the young people and local safer neighbourhood teams and police community support officers ensure that any barriers are broken down.

Street Sports also creates routes into education, training and employment by offering young people the chance to volunteer at the Trust, gain sports qualifications and access employment opportunities.

Hounslow Homes have significantly increased their investment for the next 2 years to over £90k in support of the project. Godfrey Hamilton, Housing Services Manager for Hounslow Homes said:

"Hounslow Homes is delighted to continue its partnership with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust through the Hounslow Street Sports project. The project has been extremely successful over the last 3 years and our increased funding for the next 2 years demonstrates Hounslow Homes commitment to providing positive engagement activities, training and employment pathways for young people living within our housing communities."
