"British Fencing has enabled us to reach young people with creative attributes who previously hadn’t found a sport that suited them" - London Youth, Sports Development Officer

Through working in partnership with London Youth we are able to provide young people across London with the opportunity to try fencing.

Our partnership with London Youth allows British Fencing to provide youth workers with training to deliver fencing in a safe, fun and engaging way, whilst ensuring that the activity can be sustained and delivered in-house.

Engaging over 1300 young people in fencing, the partnership is proud to have achieved the following:

  • Average retention rate of 71% (calculated by young people attending at least 60% of the sessions on offer)
  • 60% of participants are ethnically diverse
  • 38% of participants are female

As well as providing opportunities for young people to take part in fencing, we ensure we are training and supporting youth workers to deliver the sessions on a weekly basis. Youth Workers are provided with information on how to connect with the British Fencing Bronze Award, to give the young people a sense of achievement in the activities they do. A number of young people have also used fencing to support them in achieving their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

“These sessions have allowed us to offer something different that is not currently easily accessible within the local community. We feel that we have allowed some young people who maybe otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity to be involved, and by being involved helped them to develop new skills.” Youth Worker
