SSF programmes are now well under way for our East Central Team in Fife!
Through the summer holidays, the team continued to develop existing programmes in Lochgelly, whilst also receiving additional funding to launch a new Shell Twilight programme in partnership with Fife Active Schools, as well as launching our first ever SSF Chance:2:Be programme out with the Glasgow local authority!
Shell Twilight: Lochgelly
Working in close partnership with Fife Active Schools, our East Central team received additional funding through the Fife Council Be Active fund to launch a new summer taster Shell Twilight programme in Lochgelly.
The programme provided a platform to showcase the weekly CashBack For Communities funded programme which runs on Thursday evenings in the Lochgelly area. The summer taster programme was consistently well attended by local young people and was seen as a great opportunity to try new sports and get an insight into what the main programme is like.
Throughout this programme, lead Shell Twilight Coach, Rhona Wilson, carried out an impact assessment to understand what effects the programme has had on our regular attending young people, this report will be published shortly.
SSF Chance:2:Be: Lochgelly
As well as this, the team launched our first ever SSF Chance:2:Be programme outside of Glasgow. The session takes place at the Fife Cycle Park in Lochgelly with young people from Lochgelly High School and Pupil Support Services attending. We are looking forward to seeing how the young people develop over the next 12 weeks!
All of our programmes are currently free and have been made possible thanks to key partnerships and funders.The Shell Twilight programme is supported by Shell and CashBack for Communities and Fife Active School’s. The Active:2:Grow programme is delivered in partnership with SAMH, and is supported by Comic Relief. Additional supporters for both programmes include Lochgelly High School, The Clued-Up Project, Community Sports Hubs Fife.

In August we welcomed Chanelle Gallagher, our new Youth Development Coordinator for Stirling to the team! Since then, the team have been working on creating new and exciting partnerships in the local area. Our key partners, Active Stirling and Stirling Council, have gone above and beyond to help SSF settle back into the area and prepare for the launch of multiple Sport for Change programmes. Our Shell Twilight, Active:2:Grow and SSF Chance:2:Be programmes will be available in the Bannockburn, Raploch and Cornton areas of Stirling before the end of the year.
