    My name is Michael Broadhurst and I have been working with the Rotunda and attending education courses in centre for a few years now. I have been applying for the funding through the Rotunda because the young people in my area didnt have anything to do but get themselves into trouble and this was affecting my com-munity. Kirkdale is a one of the most deprived areas in Liverpool; the young people that I am engaging with are get-ting involved in gang crime and antisocial behaviour. My idea is to engage them into rotunda youth club by delivering group sport sessions, so I applied for the Team of Carraghers Fund through the 23 foundation and youth bank. I was successful in achieving a bid of 500.00 which allowed me to buy sports equipment. Not only did I secure this funding but I was invited to an award ceremony, along with 2 students, to not only get my certificate but meet Jamie Carragher! The project was really successful and around 10-15 young people would attending every session. In doing this I managed reduce antisocial behaviour in my community and supported quashing ASB orders. The main evidence of this significant reduction was complaints off my community halved within 3 months of this pro-ject - I believe this has made a big difference to the lives of people in my community. I am hoping that future funding will be available so that this project can continue with its amazing results.
