What will I be doing?

  • Volunteers will be setting up and leading a 60 minute boxing session with vulnerable young people in our Greenwich services.
  • Volunteers will also encourage our young people service users to participate by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment.
  • Engage and communicate with young people from diverse backgrounds and a mixture of levels and abilities.

What impact will this have?

  • Help support SHP's award winning sport and health programme, by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment to a vulnerable clientele group.
  • Help to remove the key barriers of physical activity amongst the homeless, whilst also improving the physical and mental health of our clients.
  • Build a positive social rapport with clients, offering support and an opportunity for them to engage and potentially lead sessions of their own in the future.
