Positive Futures

Positive Futures is a sport based social inclusion programme that has been delivered in Newport for the past 14 years. The programme uses sport as a tool to engage young people, predominantly aged 10-19 years, within our communities in local community facilities, and through a referral process from a range of partnership agencies.
