We will also look at what you might be able to keep an eye out for, even remotely, if a young person is struggling with their mental health and provide you with some safe and reliable places that you can signpost them too if you or they feel that further support or advice is needed.


Understanding Young People from low socio economic groups – 28th April


This workshop will bring to life research to help learners to gain a better understanding of some of the issues that influence young people’s lives, and how this can have an impact on their sports participation levels. This interactive workshop will draw upon experiences in the room, challenging learners to think about the young people they work with and the wider issues that they face on a day to day basis.


Developing Resiliently Active Young People – 26th May


The workshop will outline the role of resilience in encouraging lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. The workshop will provide insight into the theory of resilience and how coaches / session leaders can play a role in developing it within the young people they work with. Building resilience can help to increase retention in Doorstep Sport sessions and also support young people to transition into new activities and new settings.


Managing Challenging Behaviour – 30th June


This 2.5 hour workshop explores how Doorstep Sport can be used as an engagement tool to address social exclusion, anti-social behaviour and community tension and build stronger communities. Participants learn the characteristics of ‘hard to reach’ young people and how to effectively engage with them. They are shown how to recognise the causes and triggers of anti-social behaviour and they explore the development of tools and skills that enable young people to take ownership of their issues and effectively manage challenging behaviour
