Thursday 28th May saw the official launch of Us Girls Wales, with a number of activities and events taking place to mark the occasion. Utilising learning from the success of Us Girls England, StreetGames aim to drive a step change in female sport participation and address the barriers that prevent so many girls and young women from taking part in activities. Funded through Sport Wales’ ‘Calls 4 Action’, Us Girls Wales, in collaboration with Communities First, aim to work with 5000 inactive and semi-active girls and young women between the ages of 13-19.  

The launch stirred a considerable amount of media interest, with ITV Wales highlighting the worrying statistics surrounding sports participation of girls and young women in disadvantaged areas across Wales. Camera crews attended one of the Us Girls’ fast developing projects at Creazione, Caerphilly to film a popular Street Dance session and capture some of the girls’ views.
