All People Active and Safari Health & Milton Keynes (HAF Program)

All People Active and Safari Health & Milton Keynes (HAF Program)

We have succeeded through this program to feed and engage 3977 children and youth through
sports regardless of background and culture, with a special focus on those from cultures and
backgrounds, such as BAME communities and lower socio economic. We understand what barriers
are faced by different communities and work hard to integrate them with others, to be equal, all
with one goal, gaining better self-belief through the platform of sport.

We re-shape what having a good health experience whilst integrating should feel like by placing great focus on Mental and Physical health combined and understand the children/ youth challenges mentally and physically.

By having access to this funding Milton Keynes has given us a great opportunity to put our practice in place to make the children in the community feel safe and included during the holiday time. We delivered a program that enabled children in need to stay active, fit and fed during the holiday.

In collaboration with All People Active we have managed to:

  1. Offer morning and afternoon sessions 4 hours each for 4 days a week in a period of 4 weeks
    during August Month.
  2. Offer them a trending sport, kickboxing, which is a great sport to gain confidence and learn
    vital self-defence skills. We are also able to offer sports such Street dance, Yoga, Pilates,
    gymnastics, archery activities and Vital self-defence skills.
  3. Use experienced staff, teacher, Teaching Assistant as well as special needs TA to help the
