The YSF Podcast: The power of people and place

Back to News

Posted 30th July 2021

To round off our week looking at walking sport, the latest episode of The YSF Podcast speaks to the people behind the award winning walking football project in the Dearne Valley.

The weekly session at Dearne Valley College created as part of Active Dearne, won the Sheffield and Hallamshire County FA Grassroots Project of the Year at the end of 2020.

We were joined by Adam Kent, Active Dearne Community Champion; Ian Whitehouse from SJD Coaching, Councillor Ken Wyatt, and Paul Cummins, former Project Manager for Active Dearne.

The episode looks at the power of trusted people in a community, and how that can support people to be active for the benefit of their physical and mental health.
