Boxing Clever is a twenty-week integrated educational, substance use recovery and fitness programme that aims to support participants to develop more resilient identities, while encouraging educational achievement, physical wellness, and a reduction in harmful or risky behaviours. It offers a marginalized and socially excluded group, stable and drug free service users, the opportunity to reintegrate into mainstream society via the medium of a psycho-educational framework underpinned by the philosophy of peer mentoring. The programme participants undertake seven hours contact time per week of educational and physical activities. These are provided on a group basis. Participants also have access to one-to-one support as they need it as well as access to sports and training facilities as part of the programme.
Boxing Clever emphasizes adult education, sports education, and addiction education. Boxing Clever offers participants who are typically marginalised and socially excluded, an opportunity to look at how the varied and often complex issues that they have and are currently experiencing impact in their lives and provides them with an opportunity to reintegrate back into mainstream society.
This programme is open to over 18’s who are in recovery from addiction.
