Rudro Sen was appointed Project Manager in January 2020 on Levelling The Playing Field – our three-year project using sport to address over-representation in the youth justice system. Working in partnership with the Youth Justice Board and other key stakeholders, the project aims to use sport to engage and improve health and life outcomes for more than 11,200 black, Asian and minority ethnic children who are on the fringes of, or already involved with the criminal justice system.
Rudro has a strong background in the Sport for Development sector, having worked on the Just For Kicks programme in his native Mumbai, India for several years, using football as a tool to improve life and leadership skills in around 1,000 under-privileged 10-16-year-olds. More recently, having moved to London, he was a regional manager in Richmond and Hounslow for the National Citizen Service (NCS), working with 15-17-year-olds from diverse backgrounds on summer activity programmes.
He oversees the £1.7million ‘Levelling the Playing Field’ project across its four delivery areas – London, Gwent, South Yorkshire and West Midlands.
