Giving young people & adults a purpose and the opportunity to develop a career is one of the most effective routes to combating crime.
Ending poverty is complex, especially in areas of the working class & BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) communities. However, those who have been able to escape poverty, have been educated through experiences and career opportunities.
Lymore Gardens, is a football club that uses the power of sport to change lives.
We aim to combat some of the disparity that young people & adults face around poverty, health and well-being in Waltham Forest;
We challenge the Key factors that impact on young people & adults such as crime, lack of opportunities and living environments by engaging them with the common love of football then inspire those to do better, for better.
We promote inclusivity, as well as offering training, eployment and educational opportunites for those who engage.
The project primarily reaches out to young people who have an interest in getting fit or assisting in the organisation of the project; we have created a way for many young people to fulfil a role becoming involved in the club.
Within the programme, they will learn how to run a business, train, learn how to manage and take ownership of their well being, with the opportunity to gain qualifications and earn money; by delivering coaching sessions in their local community.
Word for Weapons will also take a session, educating young people about the law on knife crime, as well as showing them first aid and the best way to deal with a knife wound.
All community projects are delivered by FA 2/3 level coaches, providing professional training sessions, which will be followed by sessions from industry lead scouts, club and business owners. These sessions can take place in any park or local sports facilities. We can also run an all-female session.
We offers a range of sports based activities that are suitable in various settings
If you want to get fit, join our team, or just want some fun join our session that engages the community.
