Summer Sports Van Funding


It was noted at the end of the workshop that a sports van would be going around each area for 5 weeks during the holidays. The sessions in the North will be for 1.5 hours on a Friday. It was discussed whether to provide lunch bags for young people from local providers.


In the ensuing discussion reference was made to: -


The publicising of the van and this being sent out to networks and put on social media, the North Area Page, leaflets, community notice boards and posters. It was determined as Reds in the Community are the providers for the van, they would also publicise this via their networks.


Funding of lunch bags were discussed.  With hardship being experienced lunch bags should not be wasted and Reds in the Community will be asked to manage the flow of these. However, after consideration of the session’s times it was determined that refreshments should be given rather than a lunch bag. Work is going to be done on a drink, cereal bar and fruit for refreshments rather than a sandwich.


It was questioned if other areas were going to have the Sports Van visited but R Adams clarified that young people can be directed to the areas the van is visiting as not all areas can be accommodated.
