Hosted by Alex Sexton, Communications Manager, Sport and Recreation Alliance (@Alexx_Sexxton).
This episode we welcome three organisations who are effectively targeting hard to reach communities in order to get children and young people active.
Each has fascinating stories to share on their success, their challenges and their impact.
It is a fantastic opportunity for other sport and recreation organisations to share best practice and to learn from those making a real difference in local communities.
In an open and engaging conversation, we are joined by London Youth Rowing CEO Matt Rostron, Co-Founder of Gloves Up Knives Down, David Edgell and the Community Manager of Snow-Camp Charity, Dan Keeley.
