Their VRP commissioned project, GAMEPLAN is designed to divert and rehabilitate men aged 14-29 through sports-based mentoring. This is an early intervention, in custody and post-release method creating a long-term model for behaviour change. 3 Pillars’ sports-based mentoring model works with a range of young men, both at risk of crime and in the criminal justice system, in custody and post-release through. They give participants an opportunity to use the fitness qualifications we provide to coach and mentor others. This in turn provides young people in the community a relatable role model with lived experience to help guide them into more positive routes.
Key outcomes of GAMEPLAN include:
Participants have an improvement in mental & physical well being
Participants sustain improved relationships, family life and established support network
Participants sustain positive behaviour change and reduce their likelihood of being sent or returning to prison
Participants obtain CSLA Level 1,2,3 & Gym instructor/Personal trainer qualifications or supported in a work placement
