Havering Health and Sports Development started an Us Girls project focussing on female participation in sport and physical activity. Working with Havering College Sixth Form, other local schools, Youth Service, YMCA Romford and local clubs, they secured funding from many sources such as Freesport, London Sport and Sportivate to deliver Us Girls Programmes in various youth centres across the borough. Due to the success of these initial programmes, further funding was secured from London Sport to deliver additional sessions as part of a 30 week Satellite Club project. Again, the focus is working with appropriate partners to encourage young females to attend and provide them with exit routes and future involvement opportunities.
