Positive Futures is a pioneering new programme run in high schools across Norfolk & Suffolk, by the Community Sports Foundation in partnership with the Premier League, Norfolk County Council, the Professional Footballer’s Association and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.
Split into two strands ‘Protect’ and ‘Prepare’, the interventions look to protect young people against a number of growing issues in today’s society, through a series of weekly workshops, 1-2-1 mentorship, and multi-day residential visits.
The programme seeks to support the next generation to make better lifestyle choices, cope with stresses or anxiety, and put them on a positive path.
Aimed at students in Years 7, 8 and 9, the programme is delivered in high schools through two different models:
Sessions include workshops on drugs and alcohol, knife crime, first-aid, exploitation, extremism, and more.
Aimed at Year 10s in high schools with high levels of mental health issues, the ‘Prepare’ strand aims to develop participants’ skills and positive relationships, while enhancing mental and physical wellbeing.
One day a week, the Foundation’s Prepare Officer will deliver a 12-week intervention programme in your school to a select group. Sessions include team building, physical activity, revision techniques, managing stress and time management.
They’ll also be available for further one-to-one support with students.
The programme is run by the Foundation in partnership with the Premier League, Norfolk County Council Early Intervention Team & Youth Offending Team, the Professional Footballer’s Association and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.
