We are seeking support from crowdfunder.co.uk for:
Promoting social interaction and community cohesion through action/wheeled sports, whilst reducing isolation, social, physical and mental health issues in our local communities.
We plan to take our services on the road, out to local skateparks, town centres, schools groups and colleges to provide taster sessions, coaching and encouragement to children and young people who want to try a wheeled sport such as Scootering, Skateboarding, BMX or Roller Skating.
We will offer 'diversionary' activities to young people across devon, whilst promoting physical activity, wellbeing, respect for others, skatepark etiquette and upskilling young people to volunteer, train and learn from each other.
If we can raise enough funds, we plan to spend the money on equipment, rewards/goodies, helmets,leaflets, advertising, qualifications and training for new volunteers/staff, transport, staff/volunteer kit, and portable ramps
We want to offer vouchers to PCSOs, the Police, Youth Workers and intervention services to encourage disengaged young people into the Lodge indoor Skatepark facility and the world of wheeled sports.
We will also encourage community safety, respect for others, and security tagging as part of our events and activities.
