Makers Valley Partnership
Action Youth Boxing Intervention is a boxing club for disadvantaged young people, providing them with support and developing their social, physical and mental well being through combat training.
Young people typically are introduced to the service through Pupil Referral Units for excluded students. They are enrolled on a twelve-week work programme, which is run in collaboration with UCL and King’s College London, who are conducting research on how contact-based sports support crime reduction.
A list of programmes AYBI deliver can be found here.
