People with learning disabilities are invited to take part and we are developing specially adapted activities to enable participation and ensuring that the design and layout of the event is safe, inviting and accessible to all.
There will be coaching sessions and goal keeping skills along with academies from across London working to engage young people into football led programs. There will be fun elements of football on the day with small euro cup style competitions.
MMA, Army, St. John’s, Police and RAF Cadets are attending. To make our event all-inclusive we have specially adapted workshops to engage people not participating in the football to include arts, music and dance.
So please register for a FREE ticket, this will help us keep control of numbers attending.
Youth Unity is a peace festival to celebrate young Londoners’ achievements and shine light on the positive contributions they make to society. It aims to promote the positive benefits of community participation and social activism and to empower vulnerable young people with practical ways to remove violence from their lives.
The festival takes place in the London Borough of Havering, with a one day event, “Youth Unity Day” on Summer Solstice, 20 June, in Harold Lodge Park. In addition there will be a borough-wide community programme of youth focussed outreach engagement, learning and participation activities leading into and running on after the Summer Solstice event.
We bring together and facilitate a grassroots network of delivery partners from voluntary, education, entertainment, media, sports, public and business sectors with a range of expertise and who provide high quality learning and participation programs that support young people to realise their greatest potential.
To ensure the voice of the young person is integral to and embedded throughout the project and there is a high level of community participation in all aspects of the design and delivery of the festival, we have formed a community stakeholders’ steering group (CSSG) that is reflective of the diversity of Havering’s young people and representative of the borough’s communities.
