The skatepark refurbishment project is a partnership between Skateboard GB and VIY (Volunteer It Yourself) which combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to learn trade and building skills, on the job, by committing to help fix local youth and community facilities in need of essential repairs or improvement.

VIY are supported by Sport England to offer renovation and refurbishment project to 200+ sports clubs / skateparks, organisations and spaces that host physical activity between 2020-2023. These projects will also be supported by VIY’s trade and construction sector partners through the donation of building materials and the recruitment of professional tradespeople as skills mentors for young people and to help undertake the building works required on each project.
