Cul-de-sacs and gateways - Understanding the Positive Futures Approach

E-mail Print

Positive Futures was launched in March 2000, as part of New Labour’s overarching aim to tackle social exclusion, particularly in respect of juvenile nuisance and youth drug [miss] use.


Positive Futures is a national sports-based social inclusion programme managed within the Home Office Drugs Strategy Directorate. It has an advisory group made up of representatives from the Department of Health, Department of Culture, Media and Sport, Connexions (Department for Education and Skills), Sport England, the Youth Justice Board and the Football Foundation.

Editor's comments - [  Positive Futures is a relationship strategy, based on the principle that engagement through sport and the building of mutual respect and trust can provide cultural ‘gateways’ to alternative lifestyles. Within the individual projects, sport acts as a catalyst for engaging different people interested in similar activities within a supportive environment where secure opportunities are provided and participants are encouraged to make decisions for themselves - see our Ruff Guide to sport and youth crime  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
