A survey of over 1800 teenagers and focus groups has allowed us to create reports and a deeper understanding of how to involve less active young people.

We encourage Individuals, groups, or organisations when applying for Satellite Club funding in order to initiate a new opportunity for inactive-fairly active, local young people aged 14-19 to use this information in the planning stage. The information will also support other projects around antisocial behaviour.
