Support in our local neighbourhoods
Engaging Young People to Build Self-esteem & Improve Their Life Chances
The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Outreach Team is working throughout the Club’s local areas, informing residents of the various opportunities available through the Foundation's partnerships and the Percy House employment opportunities.
We deliver over 6500 hours of free activities each year, working with over 1500 young people every week across Haringey, Enfield, Waltham Forest and Barnet.
Through the work of our Outreach staff, local residents are able to benefit from the wide range of opportunities that the new stadium will produce. We aim to ensure the local community sees the true benefits of the stadium development, through the wider regeneration of the local area.
Tottenham Hotspur Community Football League
We've launched a new programme which aims to help reduce levels of crime and anti-social behaviour in Haringey.
The ‘Tottenham Hotspur Community Football League’ runs in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and Haringey Council.
The league runs every Friday evening from 5.30pm – 8.30pm at the Duke’s Aldridge Academy, adjacent to our new stadium development. Local Under-14 teams play in the league and compete against each other each week.
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation works with the Premier League and Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to deliver this successful football-based youth mentoring programme.
The year-long pilot programme has been delivered to over 1,300 12–18 year olds across London – all identified as being involved or at risk of becoming involved in crime – through the London Premier League Kicks scheme, using football to steer young people away from crime.
