Growth rates and obesity

It is widely accepted that childhood obesity is becoming an increasingly serious issue across the globe and one that has serious consequences for our health levels now and well into the future.

Strategies that can be implemented through sports clubs include targeted physical activity and healthy eating programs, restrictions on marketing of unhealthy food, and availability and promotion of healthy food.

Reduction in youth services

Investing in youth services has the potential to reduce knife crime and youth offending, which will lower fear of crime in the local area and improve wellbeing as well as reducing costs to the taxpayer. Beyond this, investing in youth services has the potential to transform young people’s lives. Violent behavior is an outward expression of trauma and adversity and the benefits of supporting young people to improve their confidence, physical and mental health will accrue throughout their lifetime.

Limited disabled sports activities

Sports contribute to the process of solving problems of social adaptation and loneliness among disabled children and individuals. Among the long-term objectives of activities for children who need special education are developing positive sense of self, social competence, motor skills, physical and motor fitness, free-time skills, game skills, and creative expressions and eliminating anxiety.

Youth violence gangs and post code wars

A balance of prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies is important for success in any community. Prevention programs target youth at risk of gang involvement and help reduce the number of youths who join gangs. Intervention programs and strategies provide sanctions and services for younger youth who are actively involved in gangs to push them away from gangs.
