Building upon the successful experience of Laureus Urban Stars in London, Urban Stars Belfast works to reduce gun and gang violence among the youth of the city by offering the alternative of coming off the streets and taking part in sport.
Laureus Urban Stars (www.activecommunities.org.uk) works closely with existing grass roots sports projects that are already engaging at-risk young people who are in danger of becoming involved in youth crime in some of the most deprived areas of the city.
Working with young people aged 13-19, tackling gang membership, crime and anti-social behaviour in some of the UK's most deprived communities, the project works with both male and female participants and offers young people routes into education, training and employment.
