Further information on Boots and Beats

The Boots and Beats project will offer young people 14-25 open access football and
music provision, primarily on a Friday evening, delivered over 2 static sights. In
addition, the project intends to deliver a summer programme taking Boots and Beats
on tour across Manchester delivered from a variety of venues.

The project will be young person led, through a project team of young people
established by the Project Coordinator. This group of young people will be recruited,
trained and supported to give strategic input to influence the development and
delivery of the project.

The project will have an underlying objective to increase opportunities available to
young people to improve their employability. This will be achieved through the
creation of transitional routes, including volunteering opportunities, training and
experiential learning. This will include access to courses, enterprise initiatives and
workshops.

The project will also use music and football as a tool to encourage social interaction
between groups that wouldn’t ordinarily come together and integrate awareness
raising sessions and programmes to challenge young people’s perceptions and
