Not to be confused with Reading Rocket's A.S.P.I.R.E. project, covered back in January's issue, The Aspire Co-operative Learning Trust comprises 6 local primary schools and one secondary establishment based in the Huddersfield area. Founded upon the core values of 'self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity', the Trust works to improve the lives of its young pupils, as well as their communities.  

First launched in 2015, Aspire's flagship holiday programme, 'Aspire 2 Be Active' aims to provide safe and affordable activities for young people during the school holidays - a need that had previously been identified during consultation with the community. The programme has since attracted the support of a number of local organisations, including the Pennine Sports Partnership, Kirklees Council, the Henry Smith Foundation, Golcar United Football Club and Huddersfield Town, with StreetGames itself also coming on board in 2018.

With the addition of StreetGames' Fit and Fed funding, the Trust expanded its initial provision of sports and social activities to include healthy and nutritious meals. As part of this year's Easter and summer holidays, the project was able to provide for an incredible 900 participants, treating them to a whopping 30 activities, ranging from orienteering and pony rides to football, basketball and tennis!

StreetGames would like to thank everyone at Aspire for their hard work and dedication in delivering both the Fit and Fed programme and their successful Aspire 2 Be Active scheme!
