We have satellite club funding available to be able to set up a weekly sports club / activity session targeting 14-19 year olds who fit within the stabilising young lives audience. We work with any vulnerable groups where we can develop a club around their needs, mitigating the barriers of the young people, making the sessions as safe, accessible and affordable as possible.

Through the satellite club funding, we can fund and develop a club for the first year, then will work with organisations to ensure sessions can continue beyond Energize funding.

For more information on satellite clubs, please contact Joe Lockley

Here are some of these clubs...

Introduced in Spring 2019 at Strickland House, the home of Telford After Care Team (TACT). They offer support, help and advice to people recovering from drug and alcohol abuse, along with individuals suffering with mental health issues. 

Tai Chi offers the individuals the chance to be active but also reflect through the mindfulness aspects the martial art offers.

The club was established in November 2018 to support women at risk of negative behaviour, rehabilitate within the community as part of the Willowdene rehabilitation programme. 

All Women attending sessions have completed nutrition qualifications and due to increased confidence, several members have gone on to join a local gym.


Abuse Victims Boxing  

This club was set up in Autumn 2018 specifically for sexual abuse victims across the County. The primary aim was to reduce anxiety and bring a feel of togetherness for these
young women.

After only a few months, four of the women have transitioned to the main hub boxing club, and two women have trained and now become boxing leaders.
