This project was successful in enabling inactive women predominately from BME Black and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds to become more active.
IMPACT: Project reached over 50 women and girls who were predominantly inactive and attended at least 1 session
30 women and girls were retained over the course of the sessions.
FUTURE PLANS: Feedback from participants highlighted longer session to 1 and ½ hour session was preferred
Sports Key aims to upskill a committed participant from the session & support them to qualify as a netball coach to sustain the delivery of sessions
