The Glasgow team ran the Playmaker Award via Sports Leaders UK, for two days during the Easter holidays and great fun was had by all those who took part, including the staff.
A total of 13 young people (9 boys and 4 girls) aged between 9 and 18 took part in and achieved the award held at the Swiis Foster Care Glasgow office in Baillieston. The group was facilitated by three members of experienced staff from the Glasgow team.
The two days, consisted of group activities and team games, to help young people develop leadership skills through sport and during the two days we could see children grow in confidence as they formed as a group.
Feedback from carers and young people was very positive, and this has helped us to amend the programme slightly to include more outdoor games for next time.
Several of the young people who completed the Playmaker Award will be moving on to do their SCQF Level 4 Sports Leadership qualifications with us during the summer holidays.
Well done to everyone who took part and good luck on your next activity.
