Opportunity to Train as a Lifeguard

GLL is offering the opportunity to receive funded training to become a lifeguard as a route to becoming paid to undertake that role at their leisure centres

What does Families Against Violence do?

We offer a range of services and opportunities that provides inspiration and guidance:

Improve Life Chances

We use sport to engage with young people, providing mentoring and role models.  The benefits of discipline, hard work and perseverance are experienced first-hand.  We help young people develop personally and socially – giving them the strength to reject violence and a life of crime and gangs.  We encourage education and the acquisition of meaningful qualifications and help young people move into training or employment.

Improve Relationships

We improve relationships between fathers and sons, motivating them to realise their potential, raise their aspirations and build themselves a brighter future.

Proud of our Partnerships

 We establish partnerships with parents, schools, community groups and local authorities. That way we can step in and help those young men at greatest risk of being sucked into gangs. We show them where they can get help and stay out of trouble

“Every child deserves somebody to turn to. They all deserve encouragement and guidance: the kind of example set by positive role models. Famillies Against Violence empowers men to be just that. We provide support to young, disadvantaged people so that even the most vulnerable can develop self confidence and self esteem.”

– James Gregory, Founder.


CUKI is a football coaching project working with young BME men from around Greater Manchester and Surrounding areas, to improve their lives. Football is used as a tool alongside mentoring to build their confidence, raise aspirations and encourage healthier lifestyles, whilst providing positive diversionary activities reducing involvement in gangs and crime.
