Premier League Kicks

Using the power of football and the appeal of the football club's brand, Kicks aims to engage young males and females who may otherwise be difficult to reach. The Kicks vision is ‘To target some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country in order to create safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young people’.

The scheme is designed to...

  • Engage young people (age 11-19 years) in a range of constructive activities which link to the Government’s Every Child Matters policy
  • Encourage volunteering within projects throughout the targeted neighbourhoods
  • Break down barriers between the police and young people
  • Reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the targeted neighbourhoods

In 2011 the project successfully achieved 2 national awards from the Kicks Awards 2011...

  • Beyond Kicks Award – Prison project, working alongside HMP young offenders.
  • Inspiring Young Person of the Year 16-18 year olds – Young person’s self-development

We are able to offer alternative workshops, short courses and various projects to help young people engage in positive activities, obtain qualifications and achieve economic wellbeing.

Using the appeal of football and the power of professional clubs, the Kicks Project works in some of the most disadvantaged communities across the country to create safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young people’s potential.
