Activities rolled out for half term

Activities rolled out for half term

Boxing, football and fitness activities are being combined with mentoring, volunteering and leadership opportunities and specialist support for young people and rolled out across the West Midlands this week.

It’s the Violence Reduction Unit’s latest initiative and is designed to divert 8 – 18 year olds away from violence. Each activity is designed to help young people achieve their potential and develop valuable skills that will help them flourish.

The VRU is a collaboration between the Police and Crime Commissioner and experts from policing, health, education and councils.

Below is a list of where the activities are taking place…. (More to be added soon).
