Our flagship Streetsport initiative has worked strategically in partnership with a wide variety of stakeholders over the past 13 years in over 50 locations throughout Aberdeen City with over 150 volunteers helping to deliver our activities.
Over the last 12 years we have been working in collaboration with Aberdeen Community Safety Partnership, Absafe, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service and many other partners in an effort to assist with crime prevention through intervention and diversionary tactics.
Existing impact measures of the Streetsport initiative are notable and in some instances we have helped reduce complaints & instances in youth crime; anti-social behaviour and wilful fire raising by over 75%.
The wellbeing of children and young people sits at the heart of the Scottish Government's Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) approach.
Using the Wellbeing Wheel and the SHANARRI indicators we have started to build a picture of how Safe, Healthy, Active, Nurtured, Achieving, Respected, Responsible and Included participants feel at Streetsport.
Comparing this to answers relating to school and home we can see the impact that Streetsport is having on participants, and the wider role that we play in their wellbeing.
