ARDAL Peer Research – One Year On

In 2021-22 StreetGames and ARDAL (formerly SEWSCAP) joined together to develop a collaborative Peer Research and Social Action Project in five low-income communities throughout South East Wales (Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil and Powys).

The project set out to engage young Peer Researchers from 5 community organisations to upskill and support them to undertake consultation with their peers around what an attractive sport and physical activity offer could look like in a post-pandemic world.

From this consultation, the Peer Researchers were tasked with planning and delivering a social action project, in addition to a business plan to pitch to SEWSCAP in a Dragons’ Den style event. In total £78,157.23 was awarded to enable each group to take forward the Peer Researchers’ proposed plans
for a period of 12 months.

This report checks in with the social impact projects 12 months on from the Dragon’s Den event to see how they have impacted the communities in which the young people live.
