Jermaine Jenas made a guest appearance to celebrate the successful conclusion of a project aimed at giving disabled young people in Enfield the best possible opportunity of Further Education and employment.
The THFC (Transition Help for Communities) Project has seen the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation work in partnership with Enfield Council's Joint Service for Disabled Children and Health and Adult Social Care, helping 13 young people from three local special schools over the past 12 weeks, helping them with the transition process from school into further education, work or volunteering.
The group is based at the Radiomarathon Centre in Enfield, and undertakes weekly sessions, covering a range of activities that provide an opportunity for participants to enhance existing and develop new life skills.
· Healthy Living
· Communication skills
· Teamwork and leadership skills
· Health and Safety
· Personal Safety
· Independent Living
· The world of work
Through involvement in both theory and practical activities, the project has encouraged participants to work towards becoming more confident, independent, responsible and accountable.
The Mayor of Enfield, Councillor Jayne Buckland, attended the celebration event and presented the certificates of achievement to all participants.
Last year the Club started work on its new state-of-the-art training facility at Bulls Cross in Enfield, just a stone’s throw from the Radiomarathon Centre.
As part of the development Enfield Council, Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and Tottenham Hotspur announced the launch of the Section 106 Partnership in Enfield outlining Club’s commitment of £2.3m to community sport and physical activity over the next 10 years to the London Borough of Enfield.
The relationship has seen the organisations working together to deliver sport and community programmes aimed at benefitting the lives of people within the local community.
