The All Party Parliamentary Group on Boxing
On Tuesday 25th April we attended the APPG Boxing meeting focusing on crime reduction and social inclusion. The meeting, chaired by Chris Evans MP, focused on positive examples of how boxing helps young people in deprived communities affected by crime, violence and social exclusion. The main panel consisted of:
Dr Rosena Allin-Khan - Shadow Sports Minister
Dr Deborah Jump - Senior Lecturer in Criminology
Alex Levey - Centre for Social Justice
Anna Cain - Principal
The meeting opened with a short talk from Angela Gault, Head of Operations and Development at Boxing Futures, followed by Martin Bisp the Founder of Empire Fighting Chance. Both focused on the impact that their provisions have had on the individuals that attend as well as the wider community.
The meeting was well attended by a variety of organisations and provided us with an opportunity to begin building partnerships that will enable Queensberry AP to develop further and we are looking forward to attending future meetings.
