CRIS has successfully completed the delivery of the Better United Together Project which was funded by Awards for All. The project was delivered in the neighbourhoods of Black Heath, Rowley Regis, Oldbury and Halesowen and was focused on addressing issues faced by children and young people. We worked with local churches and mosques and organised training sessions for children, young people and their parents. The project also included physical training and educational field visits to places of interest in and around Birmingham. Lessons learnt from this pilot project will be used to plan further work around children and young people.
