The National Initiative for Creative Education (NICE) is also Hull Migrant Centre and some of their work focuses on supporting young refugees and asylum seekers – mainly around their education. The young people that participated had all arrived in Hull in April/May 2020 and were immediately under lockdown restrictions without access to some of the support they would usually be offered and without the ability to meet others. This project supported them to have the opportunity to be physically active but also to meet others and also get to know the City as the activities took place across different facilities. Swimming was a big focus of the project with some of the young people not being able to swim, or never having the opportunity to sim prior to this project.
