Community Games provides opportunities for children and young people aged between 6 and 16 to develop active healthy lives in a safe environment by taking part in a wide range of sporting and cultural activities. Community spirit and co-operation is at the heart of Community Games with a big focus on participation rather than winning. The Organisation believes that every young person should have the opportunity to take part in sports and art in their local community and grow up understanding the positive impact this can have on your life. Children can participate in a wide range of individual and team events in their local area and then go on to compete at County Level and finally in the Annual Festival which takes place every August. Community Games works with 200,000 children, 10,000 volunteers and over 1.3 million supporters in about 560 areas throughout 30 Counties.
