Active Communities Network

The four year GOALS project (Generating Opportunities and Learning through Sport) is supporting over 400 at-risk young people aged 12 to 21 in the Shankill, Falls and Springfield areas.

The project focuses on personal development and preparation for employment and learning, using sport as a tool to get young people involved and help them improve their lives. The project is working on the street to address problems with alcohol, drugs, and antisocial behaviour and is providing alternative activities including team building, sports, fitness and dance.

The young people are organising and running events including family sport days, festivals and charity fundraisers. They are also sitting on a youth advisory panel, helping to track the success of the project and working as volunteers or peer mentors.
