In brief

The Cardiff City FC Community Foundation creates opportunities for people, whatever their background, to lead healthier and more active lives, improve education and employment opportunities and reduce levels of offending and reoffending, improving their lives and helping build flourishing communities.

Problem to be tackled

The target group are young people aged 11-19 who are living in areas of high crime and high deprivation, including young people who commit crime live in these areas. This group is not only disadvantaged due to living in deprived communities but also vulnerable due to the impact of living in high crime areas, and thus they want to deliver an early intervention programme which engages young people before they reach high risk ages which would make them more vulnerable to criminal involvement.
