Investment into employability opportunities for young people

Source: Sport England 17.03.22



Young people in the West Midlands will get access to new volunteering and employability boosting opportunities thanks to funding of £250,000 by Sport England and £750,000 from the National Lottery’s Community Fund (NLCF) into Gen22.

 A legacy project run by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Organising CommitteeGen 22 aims to create 1,000 new opportunities for local young people to gain life skills from Games-related activities and enable those facing barriers such as parental responsibilities, or a criminal record, to contribute 30,000 hours of social action towards the Games.

Sport England's investment in Gen22 will see them working with six West Midlands Active Partnerships to focus in on sport and physical activity related youth social action volunteering. NLCF funding will support four ‘flagship providers’ - The Canal and River TrustStreetGamesGroundwork and Positive Youth Foundation - to enable young people in designing and delivering youth social action projects in one of Gen22’s four focus sectors of mental health and wellbeing, physical activity, sustainability and creativity.
