As part of the Places for People (PfP) & StreetGames Doorstep Sport project, Hat-Trick, a local community sports provider, have been delivering weekly sessions for PfP residents in a housing estate in the West End of Newcastle. The focus of the programme is to engage as many young residents of PfP housing as possible, at sessions right on their doorstep. This project specifically engages young people from ethnically diverse communities.
By providing weekly multi sports sessions in and around the Places for People housing in Newcastle’s West End, Hat-Trick have created a solid, and growing, participant base. In total, Hat-Trick have now worked with 33 unique young people and 19 mothers/female carers who live in and around the PfP housing as part of this project.
