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.
