A fundamental aim at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is to ensure that all of our projects and programmes are inclusive and provide the appropriate opportunities for young people and adults across our local communities. The Foundation creates innovative partnerships with other people focused organisations that are committed to sharing best practice and working together. We believe that partnership work is the only way that we can enable people of all ages and abilities from all communities to fulfil their potential and live within an inclusive society. We are currently working within Equality and Inclusion partnerships that focus on supporting target groups, namely, people with learning difficulties, disabled people, people who are experiencing mental health conditions and older people. We aim to provide opportunities that enhance people’s development and create life-changing experiences. This is achieved through the role we undertake in actively supporting the equality of opportunity, inclusion and development of people within areas such as sports and physical activity, education and training, transition and volunteering and employment.
