Your Future is supported by Children in Need and delivered in partnership with North Middlesex University Hospital and Whittington Hospital. It aims to engage and help young people who have experienced injury or trauma through violence via a sport-based mentoring project.
The programme uses the power of the tracksuit to engage some of the most difficult to reach members of society and signpost them through education and on to training, volunteering and employment programmes through the Club.
The programme is currently based at Whittington Hospital and North Middlesex Hospital's A&E Department. Young people who are admitted in relation to incidents of youth violence are directed by the healthcare professionals to speak with a Foundation mentor.
The Foundation mentor has an initial meeting with the young person and their parent/carer to assess their needs. The young person would then be offered the opportunity to engage in a range of provision available in their area that the Foundation or one of our partners is delivering.
Once they agree to be part of the programme, the A&E Safeguarding lead makes an official referral to Foundation's Your Future programme. One-to-one follow up sessions will be held every two weeks with the young person to evaluate their progress throughout the programme.
Group sessions are also held which include workshops on topics relevant to the lives of young people such as anti-knife crime, conflict resolution, sexual health awareness, employment and sports development tailored to the participants' needs.
