The Access to Sports Project is a partner in the EU funded, EGPiS (Encouraging Girls participation in Sport) project. The partners are: University, local government and NGOs from Italy, Sweden, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Turkey and Portugal and in Islington, Mount Carmel School, Highbury Fields and Iseldon Partnership.
The project is designed to develop research and a resource for tackling sporting participation drop off rates amongst girls and young women. This will be done through agreed, shared research models (collectively developed through this project) and delivery of a pilot programme of activities. The target age group for the project is 13-17 years and are working with Mount Carmel, and Highbury Fields Schools in Islington and the Lift Youth Hub as partners for this project. The project will last 2 years. As part of the project we have been working with partners to deliver multi sports, basketball, gym and Fitness, FunFit Females! Netball, Football, Rugby & Tennis to build participation.
