Knowing the score: Positive futures case study research: Final report

E-mail Print

The research itself focused on six case study projects located in Yorkshire, Merseyside and London which reflected the diversity of organisational and delivery cultures within the wider programme.

" We have found that whilst sport does have social value this can only be fully realised within a social and personal developmental approach. This finding needs to be acknowledged nationally and locally by partners, funders, government and Positive Futures.

Since the value of any activity lies primarily in its ability to engage, those projects which have embraced a range of sporting and non-sporting activities in their work have had more success than those relying on sport alone."

Editor's comments - [  Another good research document from Substance 2005 Ltd. group lead by Prof Tim Crabbe. Visit their website at www.substance.coop for more research like this. We particularly like the fact that one of the findings about using sport in the context of a "social developmental approach" provides directional signs for student work in terms of "situated learning" [using sport to teach something else - consistent with a "youth work" approach to young people, rather than traditional sports development approach.....]. Quality stuff from Crabbe and the Substance team.  You may like to see our Ruff guide to sport and youth crime ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
