StreetGames & Laureus Sport for Good Training & Development Series 2024

StreetGames are delighted to be working in partnership with Laureus Sport for Good to support and develop community organisations in Hounslow, Haringey and Barking.

These three areas are part of ‘Model City London’, an initiative delivered by a partnership of the Mayor of London, Laureus Sport for Good and Nike which aims to improve social integration through sport by empowering local people to drive the change they want to see in their community.

We are working with Laureus Sport for Good to build capability and capacity in community organisations in these areas, supporting them to continue to use the power of sport to transform the lives of children and young people living locally.

Our Training & Development Series 2024 will see members of the StreetGames team deliver a series of six free workshops between April and June, each focused on a different theme or development area to support staff and volunteers at community organisations to enhance their Doorstep Sport offer:

James Gregory, StreetGames Deputy Director for London & South East, said: “Collaboration is one of our core values at StreetGames, and we are delighted to be putting this into practice through our partnership with Laureus Sport for Good.

“We recognise that in order to tackle the activity gap that affects those living in the most underserved communities and have a greater, more long-lasting impact through Doorstep Sport, collaboration is key.

“This Training & Development Series will allow us to share valuable learning and insight with more coaches and leaders in more communities, supporting them to transform more young lives through sport.”

Emily Neilan, Laureus Sport for Good Model City London Manager, added: “The three Model City London coalitions are now in their 6th year and working towards their long-term independence through sustainable structures and shared purpose. We see this exciting series of workshops, put together by our capacity building partners StreetGames, as an essential part of their journey towards this goal which will ensure organisations in the three areas are supporting young people through sport for years to come.”
