A Bromley sports scheme has come out on top at a national awards presentation. The MyFuture project works with children and young people who live in disadvantaged areas of the borough. They were rewarded for their work by winning The Shaping Young Lives Award in the 2015 ukactive Flame Awards. The scheme is operated by Mytime Active, a social enterprise that funds a range of services and projects across London, the South Coast, and the Midlands.
The MyFuture scheme runs free weekly sports sessions in the Cray Valley and Orpington areas. These parts of the borough are considered some of the most deprived parts of England. Their work with the local community has helped many of the young people living there to build a better life. Some former recipients have gone on to volunteer with the scheme.
The aim of the MyFuture project is to make a difference in the lives of young people growing up in Bromley. The scheme enables them to enjoy sports activities whilst aspiring to achieve the most that they can and then give something back to the community that helped them. For every £1 that is invested in this project, it generates a projected social value of £4.
