We are delighted to announce that funding has been approved by the Big Lottery Fund for a three year boxing project for Hertfordshire. Additional funding has been provided by the Police and Crime Commissioner, the People's Post Code Trust, Hertfordshire's ten local authorities and the Hertfordshire County Council People's Innovation fund. The total project funding is £437,476 over three years.
We will be employing a part-time Boxing development officer and working with Box Cleva to work with 7 to 15 year olds to achieve three key outcomes:
- Reduce the number of reported incidents of anti-social behaviour and crime
- Improve the physical and mental health of young offenders
- Increase the self-confidence and self-esteem of young offenders
Club and Workforce Development is an additional element of the project that will work across the County to produce a Hertfordshire-wide and individual district boxing development plans. These will be tailored to support the needs of each local community and encourage sustainability.
