The creation of Satellite Clubs around the Black Country will help young people aged 14-19 take part in sport for at least 30 minutes every week, and support them to take the step into community sport. These clubs can be an extension to existing or can be a new community sports clubs taking place in a range of environments.
Our satellite club approach is to place investment in areas of greatest need which is our identified areas of deprivation. There is a higher prevalence of low skills and qualifications, high unemployment, high social exclusion, high health inequalities and ultimately high physical inactivity across low socioeconomic communities. Therefore, our strategy is to channel investment into areas of deprivation and underrepresented groups to help support the inactive to become active.
