Leisure-time Activities

designed with the young people
TRAIN organises positive activities in Didcot, and trips further afield, for the young people we are working with on the streets and in the schools.

These young people are vulnerable in their leisure time, and our activities programme is designed with the young people and aimed at reducing the risk for them. For example, we support the young people to plan their own positive activities summer holiday programme.

This year young people in groups of three or four came into the office to choose, plan and organise a range of activities, including trips to Thorpe Park and to the beach. It also meant we could do more activities in Didcot like bubble football, and multi-sports sessions.

In partnership we have been able to deliver additional programmes, including a 3-week music project and #GenerationHeartbearts. This programme is aimed at breaking down gendered barriers, pressures, stereotypes and expectations that play a key role in young people’s relationship to sport, health and wellbeing.
