Positive Activities

New research from the DCSF reveals that young people see organised activities as a good thing but are held back from taking part because they don’t know what is on offer to them. The research also reveals other reasons preventing young people getting involved in activities. These include: Young people see organised activities as something reserved only for the very sporty or talented kids; Peer group pressure - teenagers prioritise friends and leisure time over taking part in activities and are often put off if their friends don’t take part; Low self confidence and lack of self belief in their ability to take part.
