Youth Justice Sport Fund Programme External Evaluation & Recommendations

Written by: Dr Carolynne Mason, Dr Caron Walpole, Dr Haydn Morgan & Professor Rosie Meek

In the financial year ending March 2023, the Ministry of Justice invested £5m supporting projects across England and Wales to use sport to enhance positive outcomes for vulnerable young people. The funding facilitated voluntary and community sports organisations to undertake targeted work supporting children and young people with a secondary level of need who may be at risk of either entering the criminal justice system or being a victim of crime.

The programme was managed by The Youth Justice Sports Fund (YJSF) Consortium which brought together StreetGames, The Alliance of Sport in Criminal Justice, and the Sport for Development Coalition who worked collaboratively to deliver this ambitious programme.
