Amp Talent Full Colour Black text Trans.

Project mission

We strive to REACH as many children and young people in order to raise their aspirations and give them a chance to showcase their talent and amplify their belief that they can achieve more in sport.

Project objectives

  • Create opportunities for children and young people to engage in talent pathway activity

  • Identify barriers and challenges in each area that children and young people face and implement interventions to help overcome these

  • Support already identified talent to maintain participation on performance pathways

  • Raise aspirations of children and young people through sport and physical activity to increase their belief in that they can achieve

  • Collaborate with local organisations to enhance the support network available to children and young people in each area

Project Phases

  1. Gather insight from across the Tees Valley to identify 3 areas where the project can be rolled out

  2. Consult with these 3 areas and co-design a bespoke project offer that is for the young people

  3. Collaborate with local providers, clubs and organisations to ensure the infrastructure is in place to support the delivery

  4. Begin a minimum of 12 months delivery of activity within each area on its own timeline 

  5. Monitor, evaluate, learn and improve

Place Based Working Approach

Place based working allows us to focus our attention on specific wards and localities that need our support the most. By narrowing our target areas, we can work closely with local providers, stakeholders, partners and key community representatives alongside local schools and sports clubs to ensure our interventions are effective, sustainable and bespoke.

By working in these more targeted areas we are able to embed r working within the community and ensure we work collaboratively with the people who are affected by it. Our place based working enables us to consult the local people and work with them to co-design the projects to fit the needs more specifically to these areas.

The Three Target Areas

We will be working across 3 areas of Tees Valley highlighted as key focus areas following in depth research and evaluation. These areas are Billingham, South and East; Redhall, Darlington; Loftus, East Cleveland. 

Each area has its own different challenges that these projects aim to address and overcome and therefore each project is very different to the others. Predominately, each project will focus time and effort with schools within the catchment area with support and development of the current infrastructure in place.
