Active Communities Network South Africa delivers projects primarily in the Cape Town and Western Cape regions, delivering projects that engage and support young people, raise aspirations through the use of positive role models and peer mentors, and offer realistic pathways to achievement.
In developing these projects we have built a network of key strategic and funding partners who have initiated, funded and supported projects that share our ethos and commitment to the use of sport as a pathway for social change.
These partners include the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, Barclays / ABSA Spaces for Sport, Football Foundation South Africa, the British Council, Western Province Cricket Club, Rio Ferdinand Live The Dream Foundation, Crystal Palace FC Foundation and UK Sport.
All our projects deliver across a number of agendas, and address a range of social issues including:
- Outreach and community engagement programmes
- Sports participation
- Community Cohesion and Social Inclusion
- Youth Crime and Anti-Social behaviour
- Personal and Social Development
- Citizenship and Volunteering
- Education and training
- Employment and Enterprise
