The B Active programme is designed to engage young people aged 16-24 into sport and physical activity from some of the UK's most deprived communities, where health deprivation and many other socio-economic issues manifest. B Active was launched in 2018 and is being delivered in five different locations across the UK; London, Manchester, Belfast, Hull and Newport. The programme supports groups of young people to not only engage in activities but to improve their lifestyles, wellbeing and future prospects. We are also launching the programme in Birmingham in 2019.
Volunteer youth workers have been recruited and trained to help deliver the programme which is tailored to the recipients’ needs and interests. The sessions include a number of physical activities as well as opportunities for sessions on nutrition, mental health and wellbeing.
Volunteers of the programme achieve both accredited and non-accredited qualifications throughout the programme which will help for future development for themselves and their communities.
Outcomes for participants of the programmes are:
More positive lifestyle leading to better physical health
More positive lifestyle leading to better wellbeing and levels of self-efficacy
Increased and sustained levels of participation in sport and physical activity
Broadened horizons and greater aspirations to achieve
Improved skills and knowledge applied through volunteering and social action
