The event, co-hosted by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority welcomed a number of special guests including Manchester Deputy Mayor Bev Hughes, GMP Superintendent Andy Sidebotham, Paul Axon (Director of Positive Steps), as well as StreetGames’ own Deputy CEO Mark Lawrie.

StreetGames would like to thank all those who attended for their continued interest, enthusiasm and participation!

Sport England releases new Active Lives survey report

Sport England has released a new report, outlining the attitudes of young people to sport and physical activity. Entitled ‘Active Lives – Children & Young People Survey’, the report centres on five key findings, many of which strongly correlate with StreetGames’ own research and experience. For example, the report discovered a large discrepancy between boys and girls in terms of their sporting and physical activity confidence - 47% of boys described themselves as confident, compared with just 31% of girls - a figure that lends further credence to StreetGames’ ongoing work with the female-focused Us Girls programme.
