That the Parliament congratulates the Denis Law Legacy Trust’s successful Streetsport programme, in partnership with Robert Gordon University, which, it understands, is helping hundreds of young people in Aberdeen; understands that the programme currently offers nine different sessions per week around Aberdeen, where youngsters can get involved in a wide range of free sport and creative activity to help boost their confidence and their mental health; further understands that this programme received a £10,000 grant from NHS Grampian Endowment Fund, which helps to allow these safe spaces to be offered to young people to engage in activities; applauds what it sees as this fantastic programme, which recently recorded its busiest ever quarter in getting younger people active, and hopes that this great work can continue into the future.
