To deliver the Door Step Club project, Sport England is working with StreetGames to create sustainable clubs for young people in disadvantaged areas. These are informal clubs run for young people, by young people, and have a transformative impact on the individuals themselves as well as the communities which they come from. The £0.5 million pilot is under way to deliver 46 Door Step Clubs across the country. This will be scaled up to £20 million delivery over the next four years to 2017.
