ATF works with young people at risk of exclusion to provide a safe environment, increased opportunity and enhanced wellbeing. Our support for young people isn’t limited to sport, and our staff are far more than just coaches. By building a sense of community and teaching life skills through sport, art, heritage and culture, we have seen an positive impact on anti-social behaviour in the areas we work. Our partners include; schools, councils, probation, sports organisations and housing associations. Working with them, we deliver programmes for young people aged 5 to 11 and 12 to 24. Together we have built bridges between communities and increased cohesion.
Our current business plan includes a number of schemes to grow our volunteer base, expand our training provision and decrease financial reliance on external grants.
