To Care Is To Do
Looking after care leavers within our community
To Care Is To Do, supported by BT Sport's The Supporters Club and Premier League, is designed to engage and inspire looked after children and care leavers within the local community, and sees Tottenham Hotspur Foundation provide a range of support services to help improve educational attainment, increase employability, develop life skills and promote healthy and active lifestyles.
The Foundation secured a substantial grant over a three-year period from a recently-formed and growing partnership between The Supporters Club and the Premier League, which will see The Supporters Club match-fund club projects with the Premier League. The partnership aims to provide funding to strong, innovative, social change programmes focussed on improving the lives of young people.
As part of Tottenham Hotspur’s on-going commitment to delivering initiatives that work to overcome issues facing children in care, To Care Is To Do is delivered in partnership with Haringey Council Virtual School.
The Foundation has a proven track record working with looked after children and care leavers to support and guide them on to education and employment pathways.
This includes one-to-one mentoring, life-skills workshops, pre and post-employment support, work experience opportunities and study assistance as part of the To Care Is To Do provision.
To Care Is To Do - Wisdom's Story
Wisdom was in foster care when he was referred to the To Care Is To Do programme – designed to engage looked after children and care leavers within the local community.
The support provided by the Club brought Wisdom out of his shell and allowed him to fulfil his potential. This resulted in him recently winning a Haringey Outstanding For All Award for academic achievement after overcoming adversity.
To Care is To Do is a closed programme. Entry on to the programme is via referral only.
