Play to Potential

Play to Potential

The Play to Potential programme engages young people aged 14 to 17 in activities that instil the skills, confidence, and knowledge to avoid risk taking behaviours. The project adopts a public health approach towards reducing youth led crime, implementing a collaborative, data led approach towards engaging young people at high risk of engaging in crime in West Hull.

Play to Potential aims too:

  • Increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities in rugby league and a range of sports

  • Enhance physical and mental well-being, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills

  • Strengthen communities with a culture of volunteering, social action and positive role models – supporting education, training and employment pathways (focusing on 16-18)

  • Work in partnership with young people, the police and other stakeholders to support the younger generation with the societal challenges they face (e.g youth violence) and to improve community safety

  • Inspire young people to develop positive, supportive relationships with one another and the authorities

  • Promote integration and champion equality, diversity and inclusion
