With the support of sported., The Dracaena Centre have secured the funding required to deliver their £160, 000 sports project. The five year sustainable project has been part funded by the Football Foundation and sported., with management costs funded by Lloyds TSB, and in-kind contributions from Cornwall Sports Partnership and Volunteer Cornwall.

The project will see the employment of a full time Sports Co-ordinator, who will help establish 10 new sports clubs at the centre, train 30 sports volunteers and engage with over 5000 young people in sport from the local community.

Richard May, Dracaena Centre Manager, said "We are extremely grateful for the support that sported. has given us, we know there is no way we could have done this on our own. The service from sported. has been superb."
