Breaking barriers:Community cohesion, sport and organisational development

E-mail Print

Breaking Barriers was a three year Community Cohesion project operating on a pan-London basis, with an emphasis on engaging and supporting minority ethnic communities into mainstream participation in sports, education and employment.

Operating from 2007–2010, it was led by the Active Communities Network (ACN) and designed as an ‘action research’ project utilising three different approaches to delivery in order to illuminate and evidence good practice. As such, it was launched with an integrated research strand that was designed to both inform the project as it progressed as well as providing an overall evaluation. This report is the Final Report on that research.

Editor's comments - [  This report is a valuable study into the effectiveness of various approaches to using sport to engage with minority ethnic communities and to strengthen community cohesion generally.

The report underlines that, if they are to be successful, community sports projects cannot operate in isolation, but must work in partnership with key organisations, such as housing associations and local charities. It also illustrates the importance of entrusting outreach delivery work to the right people to ensure maximum impact in engaging with hard-to-reach groups and individuals.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
