Sport beats drugs and crime – now we can prove it

PUBLISHED March 7, 2005

Some of the finest achievements in sport are not those by high-profile, high-earning professionals but by individuals and teams whose efforts are more likely to remain unrecognised.

Positive Futures is a project launched in 2000 but only just beginning to demonstrate its potential. Its purpose is to provide sporting opportunities for 10- to 19-year-olds living in the most deprived areas of England and Wales with the aim of reducing their involvement in crime, drug abuse and antisocial behaviour.
