Sports – based Programmes and Reducing Youth Violence and Crime
This synthesis study examines evaluations of sports – based youth interventions in London and finds different types of evidence claiming that sport can indeed reduce youth violence and crime.
Project Oracle is a children and youth evidence hub that aims to improve outcomes for young people in London. We do this by building the capacity of providers and funders to develop and commission evidence-based projects, creating an ecosystem in which evidence is widely gathered, used and shared. We also work with specific “cohorts” or sub-sets of the sector to embed good practice, and at a national and international level to promote the wider use of evaluation and evidence. Project Oracle is funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA), the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime (MOPAC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
