Active and Inspired is a two year funding programme encouraging children and young people to be active and inspired within their local community through projects run by local clubs and organisations.
There are over 40 projects in the Wakefield districts benefitting young people from ages 6 - 25. Active and Inspired places young people at the heart of local activity, involving them in decision making and ensuring young people feel connected to their community increasing young people's skills, confidence and health.
The Well Youth Clubs role for active & inspired is to provide detached youth workers that engage with the young people of our community on a weekly basis outside of our youth club setting.
We also launched our Multi Sports Hub sessions at our Youth club venues with an amazing uptake on our first week which saw 35 young people engaging in sports. With the success of this we then launched our youth dance group NYD "Normy Youth Dance" which teaches the children a different range of streetdance styles such as HipHop, House, Commercial, Waacking, Break Dancing and much more.
Our Active & inspired youth worker vicki has also created an online platform in which the children can continue to take part in physical activity at home.
