We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to develop
relevant technical and vocational skills to support employment and
entrepreneurship in the 21st century. As a result, we will design, develop and
deliver a range of educational opportunities that meet the needs of the local
population of our borough heartlands in order to address disparities in education
and employment prospect of young people, with a specific focus on those most
vulnerable in society.
Good health is central to a person’s happiness and wellbeing. We are committed to increasing awareness and supporting preventative provisions that enable our communities to improve their mental health and physical wellbeing. By working with key partners both locally and nationally, we will deliver innovative programmes and campaigns that respond to the needs of our local communities, increase participation in regular physical activity and self-esteem, while reducing stress and anxiety. Physical activity can also play and important role in preventing mental health problems as well as improving the quality of life for those experiencing them. Our programmes will ultimately enable our communities to lead happy and fulfilled lives.
We will continue to challenge discriminatory attitudes, removing barriers to participation for everyone, regardless of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status. Supporting our communities to fulfil their potential. By supporting the design and delivery of programmes that promote the inclusion of those from traditionally under-represented groups in rugby, including but not limited to the promotion of women and girls, black and minority ethnic groups and those from low socio-economic groups at all levels.
