Kicks

CACT’s Kicks project uses the medium of sport to engage with young
people and it’s targeted at those
living in communities where they are considered to be more vulnerable to crime either as victims or potential offenders.

The programme “builds safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young peoples’ potential”, and engages youngsters who had previously
proven difficult to reach and guides them towards a range of healthy and constructive activities.

A key objective is to break down barriers between police and young people and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the targeted areas. The free sessions for 12 – 19 year olds are proven to reduce crime and anti- social behaviour and increase interest in sports, while creating life changing opportunities that lead young people to find employment and education.
