Leith One World Sport

Funded By


Our partnership project linking Pilmeny Youth Centre and Multi Cultural Family Base "Scoring a Goal for Inclusion" project moves to its next phase on Wednesday 20 August. The LOWS (Leith One World Sports) group is delighted to announce that funding has been awarded by CYP Scotland Cash-back Small Projects Fund. The funding award will permit LOWS to offer 10 sports and recreation sessions, spread over 5 weeks targeting children aged 7-11yrs drawn from the current membership lists of PYC and MCFB. Sessions will be split between the Pilmeny Youth Centre on Wednesdays with Sunday sessions being held at, the larger multi sports games hall, at Pilrig Park Special Needs School. It's hoped the ten sessions will be the "launchpad" for a more sustainable, long term LOWS project promoting community integration and a friendly connection point for supporting local BME children and families.

Ages 7-9 Years - 4:00pm-5:30pm - Pilmeny Youth Centre

Targeting existing service users from PYC and MCFB projects aged 7-9 years, sessions will revolve around sports but will include a variety of other activities with the aim of promoting group work skills, diversity, inclusion and community cohesion.

Ages 9-11 Years - 2:00pm-3:30pm - Pilrig Park School

Targeting exisiting service users from PYC and MCFB projects aged 9-11 years, sessions will consist solely around sports in the form of a five-week tournament focussed programme, with the underlying aim of promoting group work skills, diversity, inclusion and community cohesion.


Spaces at sessions are limited and are currently only being offered to current service users of PYC and MCFB projects.

P-KAD Project. Our Pilmeny Kick About Nights moved a step closer to reality with capital funding support awarded by the Gordon Faser Trust, The John Watson Trust and the Rank Foundation. The generous contributions from all three funders has allowed PYC to lay the "foundations" for our winter evening sports projects with the purchase of four portable floodlight rigs that will allow PYC to facilitate evenings sports activities - 4 a side football - Basketball - Unihock etc at the two recreational areas contained within Dalmeny Street Park. Two ideal sites, used by local children and young people, from dawn to dusk in the Spring and Summer evenings, but lie redundant as soon as the clocks change in October. When the dark nights flood in....its all systems go for P-KAD
