Other Services

Sporting Chances: Creative
Sporting Chances: Creative is an exciting new extension of Sporting Chances. A service aimed at creative young people 16 and under that may have emotional, behavioural or medical conditions preventing them from conforming to mainstream school. We aim to integrate young people that may suffer from things such as social anxiety, learning difficulties and other preventing conditions, by focusing on their creative interests as an alternative way to aid their learning. The ‘Creative’ initiative at Sporting Chances, accommodates the young people that have more of creative flare, nurturing their talent and passion for expressing it.
