E-mail Print

In September 2001 Leisure Futures was commissioned by Sport England to carry out a “Review of impact and good practice” on a range of revenue funded schemes included in two of its main ‘branded’ programmes - Active Communities and Positive Futures.

The aim of the research was to:

positivefuturesCarry out a ‘short and sharp’ review of the sporting and broader social impacts of the Active Communities and Positive Futures projects that will provide evidence of what has been achieved to date, identify good practice, and inform and help to shape future investment decisions in these and related programmes.

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.

More detailed findings are available in the individual project reports - The brief for this work required the production of an overall summary report and 'brief project specific reports for each project'. This document covers the latter - individual project reports on all 24 Positive Futures schemes. Half of the schemes were visited and interviews were conducted ‘face to face’.
