Breaking Boundaries is a 12-week project taking place at Moss Side Millennium Powerhouse; a charity-run Council building with its key objective being youth.
DMSF will work in partnership with Manchester Active (MCRactive) to deliver a programme of activity with multi-sport and cricket at its heart.
Programme Manager, Bex Wilson said: “We’re delighted to be working closely with MCRactive to deliver this programme, many of our values and core objectives align and we both strive to inspire and encourage everyone to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle.”
The project will use multi-sport and cricket to enhance social cohesion in the community and DMSF will actively engage with young people [from the Moss Side and Whalley Range postcode area] from a range of different ethnic backgrounds, offering them the opportunity to play sport, be active and develop leadership skills.
It is widely acknowledged that playing sport, interacting with others, and being part of a team enables people to develop numerous skills.

“Not only is it fun to play, sport teaches us many skills that we take into other areas of life and cricket is a perfect example. In cricket, there are many leaders, from coaches, captains and vice-captains, to the bowlers setting the field. Yet both on and off the field, it’s the captain that plays the most important role in building a united team and getting the best out of every individual. We want our young people to have fun getting active but also to learn and develop some valuable leadership skills.
