    Since 2010, the social services administration of the Municipality of Copenhagen has led the implementation of a sports project for young offenders who are at risk of criminal behaviour, including drug and alcohol trade and misuse, as well as young people with criminal records. The goal of the practice is to include young offenders in society by engaging them in group or individual sport activities and training sessions provided by volunteers, social workers or previous participants of the project.

    4. Tadpoles

    United Kingdom, 2013 - Still operating

    The Tadpoles programme is a group-based intervention that aims to develop the attachments between adoptive parents and children through play. It is based on ‘Theraplay’ principles. Senior practitioners first visit families at their homes to give families information about the intervention and to conduct an initial assessment of the nature of attachment between parent and child. Families then attend four group sessions, during which practitioners demonstrate a new play technique that families practice in the second half of the session. There are also opportunities for free play and socialising between families.
