He also arranged a trip to pretty muddy for the girls. Ronan worked with Imran to make sure he had the quidance and the support that he needed. Imran felt that rather than PE teachers promoting and organising the activities which could be seen as a bolt on to PE lessons he wanted a different approach for the students to get involved, so he decided to give ownership of the activities to the students. ,The numbers fluctuated from activity to activity with an average attendance of 16-18 girls, some activities were more popular than others, for example the girls didn’t enjoy the boxercise so we changed to clubbercise instead, towards the end of year 1 we delivered the cheer dance which was our most popular activity and this also included 4 year 11s coming down every week to assist the coach. A block of running was delivered in the lead up to the Pretty Muddy event in June 2017.

We have had tried some new ways of working with groups and individuals and utilising the AQA structure for intro to leadership. A great example of using the AQA within a project was within a Positive Together Climbing project which was well received with the climbing group. The training was achieved by working with the group during the activity with peer support and delivered in a flexible format that outcomes could be met during climbing sessions. Use of a more flexible format delivered within climbing sessions meant a better engagement as the group felt more assured and confident by attending with peers. From this piece of work we will be looking at utilising on a wider scale across more of the LSP projects to encourage the first step into coaching and leadership.Within the Satellite Club Volunteer programme a total of 36 leaders have been trained. 26 males / 10 females. With new leaders trained this has shown an impact of engaging 240 new participants across 6 schools.

His chaotic lifestyle had led to him commit a large amount of crime meaning he was classified as a ‘prolific offender’ by the criminal justice system. After the death of his sister to a drugs overdose; Colin decided it was time to turn his life around and began to engage with various support networks. ‘I had been in and out of narcotics anonymous but it hadn’t worked so I thought I would look for something else, that’s when I got introduced to Jane at CSI’.,Colin told us that he now has a keen interest in physical health and makes a concerted effort to eat healthy meals and do regular exercise. Colin advised that because of this change in behaviour he has already started to lose weight. Without the support and encouragement from the CSI project it is unlikely that Colin would have adapted his behaviour as this was something that he had not previously considered. In April 2013, Sport England estimated that the cost of physical inactivity in Lancashire 14 was £29,282,690. In 2013-14 46.8% of the Lancashire population failed to meet CMO guidelines of 150 minutes per week and 31.4% failed to take part in at least 30 minutes of physical activity per week. This represents an average annual cost of £42.33 per person (calculated using population statistics from the ONS).As a result of his improved health Colin also advised that he is making less trips to the doctors. On average, he would often visit his GP at least once a week. One GP consultation costs 41.00 and so we can therefore assume a cost saving of £41.00 per week or £492 per year and total cost saving of £534 per year.,55,000,Women & Girls,Disability,Healthly Lives,Clubs and Facilities,Actual,2016 - 17 Annual Report,Looking ahead to 2017 - 2018,60,168,Aim,Children and Young People,Finance,Over 1000 participants engaged in the programme,10 Support Workers,25 volunteers,71 projects have now been delivered and established over the 3 years,2945 individuals engaged in Sport & PA,plans to take this up to the 75 target before the end of May 2017,Delivery in 71 of Lancashire’s Most deprived wards (Top 10% IMD).,SummaryTo get people more active they need to be inspired. Coaches and volunteers have a major role within this, as without supporting these people, it’s unlikely we can increase the number of people starting and staying active. Volunteers involved in sport in Lancashire 7.4% of population.Coaches registered on Coaching Lancashire - 1,737Over the last year we have supported the development of the clubs by offering workshops linked to Club Matters. The workshops include: club finances, club structure, marketing, business strategy and tax requirements for club people.

He has been working hard to find ways that he can be kept busy in a positive lifestyle. Challenge through Sport Initiative was something he saw on the internet and followed it up. Following positive communications with support workers Mickey decided to give it a go and has never looked back. CSI has given Mickey the confidence to go out and meet new people and speak to people who he would never have spoken to before.,Thomas Spence is 14 years old and has recently joined the police cadets.
