Participation in structured sporting activities by young people can help increase community safety.
Different schemes divert young people from crime and anti-social behaviour by: targeting local 'hotspots' with attractive and positive activities for young people; providing 'protection factors' for young people so that they can better resist pressures to take part in harmful or anti-social behaviour; increasing young people's self-esteem and organisational and social skills; providing positive role models for the young people through the coaches and local organisers leading the activities; and decreasing the perception and fear of crime and anti-social behaviour amongst the community.”
