Aims Engage young people into positive solo activities specifically focusing on those who face barriers such as mental health poverty and other forms of exclusion.

Protecting the vulnerable Early intervention.Working with partners Delivering togetherYoung people from lower income households where health inequalities are greatest and where participation in sport is lowest would benefit most from a more activehealthy lifestyle. The Salisbury Club 1 referral programme seeks to develop a positive impact upon the long-term health of young people through developing a culture of sustained physical activity participation. The Sports Development team has worked in partnership with the Salisbury Area Board and Local Youth Network LYN to secure funding for a pilot gym referral project. This has enabled 14 NEETvulnerable young people to access a free of charge 12-month gym membership at the newly refurbished gym at Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre.The project commenced in November 2017 and has engaged and recruited hard to reach participants through a referral process. Referrals have come from a range of local community partnersorganisations working with young people including The Foyer Motiv8 Rise 61 The WASP Centre Doorstep Sports Clubs DSCs and internal Wiltshire Council teams.The role of the referrer is key to project success as they have a professional relationship with the young person understand their issues can offer support and will know if they are ready for the commitment. Referrers must commit to accompanying the young person for the first 2 weeks which includes an induction.All 14 free gym memberships have been distributed since the project launched in November 2017 and participants have totalled 87 visits to date. Young people need to demonstrate a commitment to attending on a regular basis or their place will be reviewed and could potentially be relocated. The minimum expectation is that a young person uses the membership 8 times during every 12-week period.Through the project participants can benefit from additional opportunities including training and volunteer placements on projects such as Fit and Fed Doorstep Sports Clubs and the Wiltshire Skate Series.The referrerThe role of the referrer is critical to the success of the project as they have a professional relationship with the young person and understand their issues. Participants will need to commit to attending on a regular basis or their place will be re-allocated to another person. The minimum expectation is that a young person uses the membership 8 times during every 12-week period. This information will be reviewed after every period. Any removal of a young person from the project will be done following discussions with the young person and referrer.The role of the referrer is major to project success because they have a professional relationship with the young person and understand their issues. We do not want to set up young people to fail and making a referral for someone who will not commit to the attendance required for whatever reason will be counter-productive for them and the project. The referrer must accompany the young person to their induction and to the following session to provide support and encouragement Participants will need to commit to attending on a regular basis or their place will be re-allocated to another person. The minimum expectation is that a young person uses the membership 5 times during every 8-week period. This information will be shared and discussed by the management panel after every period.
