Battersea Summer Scheme, the principal project of the Battersea Crime Prevention Panel (BCPP) organises a number of events in the holidays for children in Battersea. Sport in the Park is our flagship event, taking place in the summer holidays. We also provide day trips, residential courses and workshops.
We work very closely with local youth groups, Wandsworth Borough Council youth services and youth offending teams.
Sport in the Park – unfortunately this cannot run in 2021.
