North Tipperary Traveller Teen Fit Programme
This programme aims to develop and deliver a weekly physical activity and healthy lifestyle programme for young travellers between the ages of 8-18 in Littleton to enable them to access sport. The objective is to focus on sports that this target group would not normally participate in, to engage with young travellers while supporting them to develop healthy habits, self esteem and positivie attitudes towards their physical health. NTSP will work in partnership with North Tipperary Young Travellers Project, Barnardos, the Littleton Residents Association and the local schools to deliver this project. On completion, the young travellers will have carried out a 10 week physical activity and healthy lifestyles programme experiencing a selection of sporting activities, including swimming, self defence, hip hop and the use of a gym, which they would not normally become involved in.
