in the community
By interrogating data and insight, and conversations with a range of partners we have identified a number of priority areas for Wesport to work in.
Our Priority Place working is designed to help us gain insight into the sport and physical activity needs of young people within a local community and to then support these needs by a combination of working with existing providers and helping to fill gaps where appropriate. We look to build relationships and connect like minded individuals and organisations to raise the numbers of young people taking part in physical activity and enjoying the wide range of benefits that this can bring.
Building relationships and gaining trust takes time, Wesport are committed to working in our Priority Places for the foreseeable future and intend to become imbedded in and be seen as a valuable asset to the community.
Our work has only just started but some initial successes can be viewed below:
If you are working with Children and Young People or families within any of our current priority areas and would like a conversation, or feel we should be joining with an existing network then please get in touch with our team on CYP@wesport.org.uk
If you want to understand more about the population in areas across the West of England, then please contact us if you are interested in using our mapping tool. Although useable, it’s not ready to publish yet while we continue to add data sets. We will share a link here and short how to use it video in due course.
