We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Streetmark Accreditation.
Streetgames is a national charity, who are supported by Sport England, who share the same ethos as us, namely that they encourage the delivery of ‘doorstep sport’. In other words we have now been recognised as delivering safe, equitable and quality sports sessions in venues around Bristol and beyond.
Streetgames supported our work last year, and following a successful series of activities which resulted in our nomination for 2 seperate national awards, they have supported our accreditation in 2010.
This is great news for us, not only does it give us recognition that we are delivering quality sessions, but it also provides us with access to the latest training, mentoring, monitoring systems and also gives us opportunities to take groups we work with to other activities being delivered in the UK. For example we took part in another Streetgames activity in Gloucester last year and saw some of the great work they were doing, we can take other groups to these sessions and help the young people we work with experience other people and their communities.
We would like to thank Streetgames for supporting us as well as our partners at Network Rail who fund some of our work and Avon and Somerset police and Safer Bristol who help us with delivery in the city.
