Revolutionary Roots is a Youth and Community Group working on various projects across the borough of Great Yarmouth. The group applied to the Trust for funds towards sports equipment which will aid holistically against substance abuse, anti social behaviour and criminal activity.
Many young people use the services of a Detached and Outreach Youth work project in central GY on the Newtown and Middleton estates.
Revolutionary Roots have great ideas to offer more physical activities, for example circus skills and sports at the youth cafe. Heidi Garwood says “This grant will give our service users and young people in the community the opportunity to be involved with sport and physical activity as a constructive activity. This will also have a positive effect on the wider community with less boredom and anti social behaviour, and instead empowerment towards personal development.”
