Belgrave Positive Lives

This is a youth project working with young people in Belgrave.

2Funky Arts has partnered with Cossington United to provide positive activities, such as football, boxing, wellbeing sessions, music and arts sessions and peer mentoring.

Funded through the Violence Reduction Network and Community Led Response, we aim to unite the diverse young people of Belgrave through positive dialogue, community engagement and practical activities.

We have been working on this project since February 2020, and have successfully delivered a trip to the National Justice Museum and 2 community football matches. Since March we have been working hard to support these young people during Lockdown. By adapting services online, we have been providing weekly online boxing sessions, wellbeing sessions, discussion groups and One-to-One support sessions.
