Step into Sport
Step into Sport (SIS) is one the eight strands of the joint Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Department for Education and Skills (DfES) Physical Education, School Sport and Club Links (PESSCL) Strategy.
Sports Leaders UK (formerly the British Sports Trust), Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust work jointly on this project, building upon their current work within the area of leadership and volunteering.
SIS has been designed to establish a simple framework of co-ordinated opportunities at a local level, to enable young people to begin and sustain an involvement in leadership and volunteering through sport.
The programme helps provide clear pathways of opportunities to train, support and deploy young people into appropriate, safe and rewarding sports leadership and volunteer activity. Download more information here or see the DCMS website.
Trust Youth is a guide to what being a trustee means for children and young people, and how to recruit them. It has been produced in partnership bewteen the British Youth Council (BYC), the Children's Rights Alliance for England (CRAE) and the Governance Hub. It is one of a series of resources which form BYC's "Youth at the Table" programme, this supports children and young people's involvement in governance. More information can be found here.
