Onside With Children In Need

Newcastle United Foundation is working with BBC Children in Need and the Premier League on an exciting new project for children and young people in the city.

Onside aims to identify if there is a correlation between sports participation and diversion away from violence and anti-social behaviour.

A 12 week programme, which has recently started, will work with up to 40 young people aged between 10 and 14.

All participants will work towards a Level 1 Sports Leaders Award as part of the programme as well as engaging in 12 classroom sessions covering topics such as Domestic Violence Awareness and Drug and Alcohol Awareness.

Each participant will also train towards an Emergency First Aid Certificate, tailored to teach them about the effects of drugs and alcohol.

The young people involved will also get the opportunity to undertake work experience and community action.

Project Coordinator Lewis Shields said: โ€œWe know football has a hugely positive impact on so many lives in the city. Thanks to BBC Children in Need and the Premier League, plus our partners at the Youth Offending Team and Northumbria Police, we hope we can tackle this important issue and help young people think about the consequences of violence.โ€
