SEWSCAP Peer Research – Impact Report

In 2021-22 StreetGames and SEWSCAP (South East and Mid Wales Collaborative Construction Framework) 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 overall aim of the project was to build upon and update learning previously gathered via StreetGames’ led Us Girls activities. To help tackle key barriers to participation that girls living in low-income communities typically face in taking part in sport/physical activity and as a result, provide them with a safe, friendly, engaging environment and more importantly with activities that they have an interest in taking part in.

This report details our approach to peer research and the impact this project had on the Peer Researchers and communities involved.
