Jump Start - Community Resilience

We strongly believe in the importance and value of sport and physical activity and how it has the potential to transform lives. Not only can it empower communities as a whole, it can give individuals the life skills, aspirations and experiences they need to nurture stronger self esteem. We hope that through our Jump Start programme we will be able to help many more vulnerable young people aged 8-18 years old in Somerset to do this.

The benefits of the Jump Start programme to young people are:

  • Improved confidence and self esteem
  • Development of new skills
  • Being active
  • Increased aspirations
  • Feeling part of a community
  • Having something positive in their lives
  • Getting some work / volunteering experience
  • Gaining a qualification
