2023 – DIVERT Project

The DIVERT project is a ten week (January – March 2023) physical fitness and emotional wellbeing programme delivered by fitness instructors, sports practitioners, self-defence experts and supported by professional mental health clinicians. Using Behavioural Activation techniques the team empower young people to replace negative and potential dangerous behaviours with more positive and beneficial decision-making processes. 

The project consists of core fitness and sports training, boxercise, Krav Maga self defence classes and an outdoor wellbeing residential at Ormside Mill in March.

The DIVERT project is delivered in partnership with Stanleys Community Centre and funded by Alliance of Sport, Street Games, and Sport for Development Coalition.
