Brentford's next generation of sports stars received a boost this week with the full-time launch of Positive Futures, a scheme to provide sporting opportunities for young people.

The scheme is designed to engage with young people in targeted areas and will now be operating for 48 weeks of the year on Brentford Towers and Haverfield Estate in Brentford and the Ivybridge Estate in Isleworth.

Whilst football will be the sport of choice in the winter months, summer brings the opportunity to try out sports such as cricket and kayaking on the Thames.

Positive Futures is partly funded by the Football Foundation, who have sponsored the Brentford and Isleworth schemes to the tune of £150,000. The sessions are free to male and female participants aged between 10-16 years.

To find out more, call the Positive Futures team on 020 8758 9430.
