Together Fund Learning Event
YMCA UASC team were invited to the Together Fund Learning Event hosted by Active Suffolk to present the funding received last year to produce Football and Volleyball sessions.
The event was held at Ipswich Town Football Club within the Bobby Robson suite. There was good attendance and some fantastic, funded events that have taken place throughout Suffolk. This was also an opportunity for us to network with other external organisations and gave us a chance to show our achievements that have been made with the funding that we were granted.
The UASC team was led by Danielle Parodi and included Stephen Mckenzie, Beth Mayes and Two young people who participated in the event by talking about their experiences and the impact that the sessions had on them.
The presentation spoke about the need for activities and the stigma that young people today face.
“In Football and all sports its all one language and everyone is equal” – Stephen McKenzie.
We would like to thank Active Suffolk for giving us the opportunity to attend this event and for all the help and guidance that they provided throughout the application process of the together fund. This funding has helped us to integrate into the community and overall has had a positive impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents.
