COO-L sports for COO-L Camden young people

Young people from all over Camden visited Mornington Crescent Gym this week to try out new sports as part of a special COO-L open day.

The COO-L scheme is aimed at young people in Camden in school years 9 to 11 who receive free school meals, are disabled, have special educational needs or are looked after, and offers £15 a month to enable kids to take part in free fun activities.

By signing up to the COO-L website, young people can get £15 to pay for activities, or take part in a wide range of free activities. They can also apply for free gym memberships.

There are already 700 active members of COO-L but the Council is hoping to reach its target of 1,200 young people taking advantage of this great service.

Councillor Heather Johnson, Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Families, said: “COO-L open days are a great way to introduce young people to the fantastic array of activities on offer through the COO-L project. Lots of our borough’s young people come from disadvantaged backgrounds and this is an excellent way of giving them access to fun physical activities for free. I would encourage more young people to have a look at the website, see if they’re eligible and to sign up.”
