HERE at Argyle Community Trust, we support the delivery of several different local sessions in areas of social deprivation. All of our coaches are a minimum Level 2 in more than one sport and have expertise delivering estate based sessions.
We are once again working closely with Plymouth City Council on a project to improve the happiness and wellbeing of young people in our region.
Plymouth Street Games provide free or low cost sports sessions across the city, opening up a world of vibrant and engaging activities to young people aged from 11 – 25.
The project places particular emphasis on youth leadership, enabling participants to thrive in an environment focussed on fun, enjoyment and social interaction.

Working in partnership with Affinity Sutton Housing, we also deliver a local project, based at the William Sutton Memorial Centre, offering free football sessions in their Multi Use Games Area, using the centre as a Hub to attract new participants. The club’s brand is the attraction and working alongside Affinity Sutton has proven to be a good way of raising participation in St. Budeaux. This session runs on a Wednesday, from 4-5PM, at the William Sutton Memorial Centre, PL5 1QF.
Supporting Sports Development
We support Plymouth City Council’s Sports Development Unit’s delivery of their Street Games project, delivering several weekly sessions on their behalf in areas such as Keyham, St.Budeaux, Freedom Fields and Lipson.
