Tackling Street Safety With Primary School Children in Brighton

In April we hosted a tag rugby tournament for primary school children in Brighton.

For the past 12 weeks, the children based from two local primary schools, had been taking part in our Rugby4Change programme. The programme uses rugby to teach children how to stay safe in their community as well as about the dangers of county lines activity.

The tournament was a huge success with four teams going head-to-head to be crowned champions of the tournament. The Four teams were made up of children from each school so everyone went home having made new friends.

After the tournament games everyone sat down together to reflect on all they have learnt over the past 3 months. The discussion was led by our Coach Mentor Hamid who himself experienced the negative impact of street safety when he was 17.

Two representatives from our incredible programme partner ‘The Fonthill Foundation’ were also on site and generously provided and awarding the winner’s trophy! Their support has made this programme possible so it was a privilege to have them join us for the day.

We look forward to hosting another tournament next year for the next cohort of primary children this programme engages with.
