The Oldbury United Community Partnership Programme is an inclusive community-based initiative that puts the people at the heart of its activities. Through positive activities, Oldbury United transforms the lives of people. We work with young people who fall into, or have the markers where they could be seen as ‘socially excluded’.
Oldbury United engages disadvantaged sections of society, young people with a need for mentoring, coaching, education and employment training (NEET). Being an inclusive service provider enables us to reach:
- minority groups
- low income families
- young people suffering from health issues and
- people with disabilities
Oldbury United utilise sport and education to build community capacity, confidence and self-esteem. We:
- improve physical and mental wellbeing,
- enhance social networks
- improve employment opportunities and
- reduce the possibility of young people becoming involved in crime.
