Breaking barriers between young people and the police
Building Stronger Communities
Kicks is the Premier League’s flagship community initiative under their Creating Chances programme. Piloted by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in 2006, the programme has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help young people at risk of becoming not in education, employment or training (NEET) in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the community to turn their lives around.
The programme "builds safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young peoples' potential", engaging with youngsters who had previously proven difficult to reach and guiding them towards a range of healthy and constructive activities.
To take part in Kicks, there’s no need to register beforehand...
...Just turn up, get involved and have fun!
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation engages young people in constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports sessions that in turn signpost individuals on to positive employment, educational and personal development pathways.
