Description of Resource

This project therefore seeks to identify and evaluate ways in which sport has been used, for the purposes of promoting the social inclusion among asylum seekers and refugees. It aims to clarify ways in which sport has actually been accessed and used by individuals and groups from such communities, the meanings and values associated with sport for such groups, the potential for development in this area, and to identify lessons learned in terms of good practice in relation to policy and provision. -Description from source
