The Space Scheme

The Space Scheme


The Space Scheme has been developed by The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner, South Staffordshire to increase access to facilities during the summer holiday for young people aged 13-17 years old.

This year we have received funding to give young people living in South Staffordshire the opportunity to access fitness facilities, for a nominal fee during the summer school holiday.

Discounted access to 'Active Youth' supervised gym sessions

Young people aged 13-17 years living in South Staffordshire are eligible to access a number of supervised gym sessions. The supervised gym sessions are held at specific times and cost £1 per session.

Cheslyn Hay Leisure Centre Tuesdays 6-7pm and Wednesdays 7.15-8.15pm. Call to book on 01922 417790

Codsall Leisure Centre Thursdays and Fridays 3.30-4.30pm. Call to book on 01902 844032

Discounted 3G Pitch Hire

As part of the funding we will be subsidising 3G pitch hire. Subsidies provide 1 hour pitch access for just £10. Subsidies will be issued on a first come, first served basis and due to limited funding, access may be restricted if demand is high.

Subsidised Swimming

Young people aged 8-17 years are eligible for discounted access to public swimming throughout the summer. Swimming access will be £1 per session and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. The discounted access will not include any inflatable swimming sessions - discounts will only be applied during public swims. (Children must be 8 yrs+ to swim without an accompanying adult).
