The name ‘Kefira’ means young lioness. We chose this name to represent the young women we aim to help through this project. The Lioness is often used as a symbol of power, courage and nobility. Switch Up promotes these attributes and many others to the young women who use our resources. The Lion species has developed a social system based on teamwork and a division of labour centred around a group of females, we also work to create an environment where teamwork, trust, sharing and encouragement go hand in hand as we tackle the associated issues females encounter when faced directly or indirectly with gang culture from inner city Nottingham!


"Links2Rugby" initiative is currently being tested with the Nottingham Rugby Club a project targeted on the aspects of well-being and physical activity for men & women aged 18 plus. The project has already been supported by local Volunteer Organisations like Round Table and individuals who want to improve their wel-lbeing.

We have teamed up with the coaching team at Nottingham Rugby Club and players who are very supportive towards the community, especially programmes which target mental strength & well-being. The team at the Notts RFC are well placed in the community and their involvement within so many projects ideally places this programme.

Leading the project, we are delighted to partner with Josh Poullet who plays in the back row..
