Presentation by Nikki Taylor (Teignbridge District Council) and Chris Broadbent (SW Youth Games Board Member), papers attached. 

Minutes:

The Committee received a presentation by Nikki Taylor (Teignbridge District Council) and

Chris Broadbent (SW Youth Games Chief Executive), on the Olympic-style county-wide

competition launched in 1999 for children and young people aged 8 – 18 years.    Lottery Funding was lost in 2014 but the Games survived and was re-energised with charitable status, and from 2015 to 2017 had 10,000 young people attending the trials and training events, 1000 competitors and 350 volunteers. The Games introduced participants to a sport or activity at a level under County standard and involved a number of targeted groups that did not usually get the opportunity to take part in such events.

 

Alongside retaining the original competitiveness of the Games, the new Games even further promoted inclusion and participation (both competitive and non-competitive) for all irrespective of ability or gender (including an increasing disability sports programme), to inspire all young people  to enjoy and become involved in physical activity and to support national and local multi-agency objectives of meeting the challenges of:-

 

- the child obesity crisis,

-low rates of physical activity;

-increased mental health issues/depression; and 

-encouraging the positive effects in general health and wellbeing of regular exercise and sport   for all.

 

There was a video, which had been compiled by a student in relation to the South West Youth Games Wheeled Sports Event in May 2017 which could be seen at   https://vimeo.com/220996807

 

Ambitions for 2018 included continued expansion and to build long-term financial security through a collaborative approach with agencies - thus requesting support in line with the County Council’s objectives and maximise funding opportunities and common outcomes of improved general health and wellbeing.  The presentation gave members an opportunity to consider how it might be most appropriate to support this.
