Sports Project funded by Sports England
The organisation has received a grant from Sports of England. The grant is for delivery of a Table Tennis project for BAME women. We plan to start a new project with the grant to get inactive BAME women in Dagenham to become more active involving them with sports and physical activities.
From our own experience and from various research reports we know that many BAME women in Barking & Dagenham are inactive. They are inactive due to lack of culturally accessible activities available in the local area. They face social and religious barriers to participate in sports. Due to inactive many BAME women suffer from physical and mental health problem.
Our proposed project is the most appropriate way of addressing issues BAME women face in participating sports and physical activities.
The organisation has received four grants from Sports of England since its establishment. The projects are :
Yoga training - 2017
Table Tennis coaching for women - 2015
Table Tennis coaching for young people - 2013
