Quick summary

Football Unites Racism Divides Educational Trust will aim to reduce violent crime and anti-social behaviour by providing positive role models, relationship building with individuals and families, diversionary activities and a committed cohort of community volunteers.

Football Unites Racism Divides Educational Trust (FURD) will work with a diverse range of young people and the local community to devise and implement an intervention programme to tackle gang, gun and knife crime amongst children and young people.  Using an asset based approach they will invest in the next generation of young people by building on their skills.

Their Community Champions Project will challenge youth crime and anti-social behaviour in central/south west areas of the city.  They will work closely to train them as youth workers by equipping them with relevant practical experience via a range of methods including operating youth club sessions, community placements, workshops in schools,  and detached work.  This will give them the skills, confidence and legal requirements to safely work with children/young people including those with challenging behaviours.
