INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
The Social Inclusion team delivers a wide range of youth inclusion projects that enable young people to participate in a diverse collection of sport and educational activities within the most deprived wards in Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond.
We are constantly addressing and adapting to the needs of our young people, allowing them to participate in activities they have requested on their doorstep. We support them to forge their own training and career pathways through enterprising behaviour and informed lifestyle decision-making within the fields of sport, youth and community work.
Our first project was Ealing Positive Futures, which began in 2003 with 1 full time staff member and a handful of casual coaches. In 2011, the Social Inclusion team consists of 55 full time, part time and casual members of staff, delivering 10 youth inclusion projects across our 3 targeted boroughs, as well as smaller session-based projects, engaging with over 2500 individual young people and delivering a wide range of multi-sport and youth work based activities.
We have various key partners ranging from national organisations to more regional groups who support our many projects through funding, strategic guidance, in-kind support, help and advice. Our partners represent all aspects of community work including sports coaching, youth work, community safety, youth offending, policing, community cohesion, social exclusion, volunteering, training and education, employment and welfare.
The Trusts Social Inclusion staff have been recognised national, receiving awards for outstanding personal achievement, Volunteer of the Year and the Street Games National Street Mark for quality of content and delivery.
