Communities and networks are strengthened

DEVELOPING STRONGER SOCIAL NETWORKS AND MORE COHESIVE COMMUNITIES CREATES LOCAL PRIDE AND A SENSE OF PLACE - IT BECOMES THE PHYSICAL FABRIC OF A COMMUNITY.

With nearly a third of Lower Super Output Areas ranked within the top 10% most deprived areas in the country, Liverpool City Region is the most deprived LEP in England.1 Across this area, a total of 54,808 antisocial behaviour incidents were reported in 2015/16, the 8th highest in England and Wales.2

By using sport and physical activity MSP helps to instils strong moral values, brings diverse groups of people together, and enhances community pride. Sport and physical activity also offers diversionary tactics for anti-social behaviour, creating safer communities, and empowers communities to be involved in decision making and to drive change locally.
