During April and May 2020, some 270 community organisations that are based in the most deprived areas of England and Wales, and 188 young people who live in those neighbourhoods, shared their experiences, worries and opinions about life during and after the Covid lockdown. These community organizations are trusted in their neighbourhoods and work with StreetGames to support young disadvantaged people to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. StreetGames calls them ‘Locally Trusted Organisations’ (LTOs).

In January 2019, StreetGames launched the London Safer Together Through Sport (STTS) programme across six areas of London. Funded by the GLA, STTS was aimed at engaging and retaining young people in previously-identified ‘hotspot areas’ - providing them with a range of positive activities that would both prevent and deter them from becoming involved in youth crime, gang activity and/or entering the youth justice system.

StreetGames’ innovative Fit and Fed campaign offers fun physical activities and nutritious, healthy meals to some of society’s most vulnerable young people. Launched in 2017, Fit & Fed reaches thousands of young people across the country each year - helping to combat the triple inequalities of holiday hunger, social isolation and physical inactivity.

In response to growing demand from London's locally trusted organisations (LTOs), StreetGames launched the Fit and Fed pilot programme in the summer of 2016. This new initiative was designed to provide cost-effective, and free-to- access food and activities to young people over the school holidays - in such a way that it could be mobilised quickly, and sustained over the long term, where effective.

Following training and support from StreetGames, Everyone Active ran a Let’s Get Physical initiative across 12 primary schools and two community venues in Southwark, south London since September 2018.

The target group was children and young people aged 8-14 years who are inactive (i.e. doing little or no regular physical activity) and/or overweight or obese.
