Truro and Penwith College, 2nd Chance and Street Games work together to create new sports opportunities for young people
Young people from across Cornwall will have more opportunity to experience regular sports activities due to new partnership work between Truro and Penwith College, 2nd Chance project and Street Games. The joint working between Cornwall's leading community sports providers will ensure young people from across the county will have access to non-competitive sports activity sessions throughout the year. Links have been established between sports sessions held for students at Truro and Penwith College and community sports delivered by 2nd Chance project on behalf of Street Games, to help young people maintain active lifestyles and access to affordable physical activity.
Truro and Penwith College have recently developed a Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme to help young people stay active during their time at the college, which provides numerous activities throughout the day for students to participate in.
2nd Chance and Street Games provide community sports activities to help improve the lives of young people, and now deliver multi-sports clubs in the evenings on many of the estates throughout Cornwall.
A number of students from Truro College have already accessed sports activities delivered on campus and through the 2nd Chance project, and are helping to encourage other students to continue sporting interests ignited by the Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme.
Julian Wills, Truro and Penwith College Sports Maker said "All three partners play a pivotal role in delivering sport to young people in Cornwall, and by working together to create affordable sports opportunities we will make accessing them much easier."
As well as linking together sports opportunities for young people the organisations will be looking at other ways to work together to help young people to access sport and physical activity.
