Challenge Through Sport Initiative (CSI) - A day in the life of

Designed, operated and delivered by Active Lancashire, The Challenge Through Sport Initiative (CSI) is an innovative behaviour change programme for people in recovery - mostly from substance and alcohol misuse but also including help for people with mental health issues, gambling addictions, isolation and just as importantly, their families. A key focus of the project is to get participants who are often in poor mental and physical health engaged in sport and physical activity to improve their long term health and economic prospects.

In this video we hear three stories from participants who have benefitted from the support offered through the project, learning about their backgrounds and barriers and how CSI has helped turn their lives around.
