The project developed by Powered By Sport was initially created in 2012 and was funded through PEACE III Strategic Grants Programme. During this funding period the project was a 3 phased approach using the sport of Inline Hockey to bring people together, break down barriers and have a lasting impact within the Southern Cluster area upon community relations.
The aim of the project was to deliver a schools outreach programme, youth engagement programme and ethnic minority programme to enhance cross community relations and aid the integration of ethnic minority groups into local communities. Powered By Sport devised a structured and co ordinated project which had a series of coaching activities, taster sessions, events, training activities, workshops and the production of a 3 year Good Relations Strategy to offer a clear element of sustainability to the project post its completion.
Powered By Sport is currently engaged in planning for a restructured and self sustaining programme. A relaunch of this programme is due to be announced in June 2018. If you would like to receive information on how your school our youth club could get involved in our future programme please contact us via our contact page and we will send you all the information in June.
