The Denis Law Legacy Trust is a Scottish registered charity (SC 043169) that currently delivers a number of free-to-access doorstep activities and programmes across Aberdeen City; helping young people take part in and gain access to sport and other creative activities within their local communities.
We break down barriers to young people becoming more active and all our programmes are completely free of charge in the communities that need them the most.
The overall aim of our activities is to reduce instances of youth crime and anti-social behaviour; promote health and wellbeing and encourage inclusivity through sport, physical activity and creative endeavour.
Our objectives are as follows:
1 To provide community-based events and activities that are free of charge and accessible to all.
2 To promote participation, social inclusion and integration.
3 To motivate and empower young people through prevention, intervention and diversionary activities.
4 To promote respect, civic values and social responsibility within communities and help reduce instances of youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
5 To promote health and wellbeing and discourage the misuse of substances, drugs and alcohol.
6 To promote education and creativity and the development of self-confidence, initiative and interpersonal skills.
7 To support and reconnect disaffected young people by providing alternative activities and opportunities for achievement.
8 To provide a platform for positive transformation.
9 To provide volunteers with opportunities to engage with and pursue personal development activities and qualifications.
