    Dudley use open space

    Ashton/Wigan marketing;chair-based in homes; falls

Suggestions for new areas:

  • Cheaper public fitness suites

    (12% cited cost (P02)-eg SIV Sheffield,build/fit/lease packages, eg Impulse fitness)

  • HIP prevention strategy and campaign

  • Integration within existing services (4YP)

    For maximum benefits ….

  • Time barrier - 2.5 hours a week

  • Cognitive gap – most people are less active than they know they should be

  • Safety out of doors

Diversion Activities

  • Positive Futures, SPLASH, Homework Centres, Arts projects

    need to ensure continuity of Restorative Justice scheme

    46% affected in C2DE groups by kids ‘hanging about’ (res2003)

    Structural Changes

  • Need mentors, free/cheap access, sustained follow up and support(labour intensive) - ’holidays for hooligans’ jibes, but huge cost of 70% recidivism

  • Growth of interest in street sports- soccer,basketball, inline and skateboarding – even in France mobile climbing walls

  • Example of skateparks involves youngsters, avoid nuisance, reduces crime (Cardiff and Edmonton)
