Us Girls and VGA!

A team of VGA's peer leaders applied for funding to deliver a project focused on encouraging girls and young women, aged 11-18, to take part in regular sport and physical activity. The team took part in a 'Dragon's Den' style pitch developed by StreetGames, which is sponsored by the South East & Mid Wales Collaborative Construction Framework (SEWSCAP).

The teams were expected to conduct peer research in their communities about what an attractive sport/physical activity offer looks like to girls and young women, and to create a business plan proposing how to create and deliver a suitable project. Research conducted by the team (both within the club and outside of the wider community), found that girls wanted to be able to choose different activities and have access to a wider variety of sports. The funding would help deliver weekly multi-sport sessions led by fully qualified staff and coaches. The proposal submitted by the team included using external organisations to deliver sessions and taster days, in order to expand the range of options available for girls to take part in. The teams proposal also included plans to up-skill volunteers as part of the project. We are delighted to announce that the team were successful in their bid, receiving a grant of £10,750!

We would like to congratulate the team of Maddie Harford, Charlie Williams, Carys Carpenter, Nia James, Olivia Brunt, along with Rachel Short for coordinating the project!
