The Premier League Kicks (formerly Kickz) began as a pilot project in London between the Premier League and the Metropolitan Police in 2006, with the aim of using football to bring communities together and engage with young people. The nationally-run Kicks project is the Premier League’s flagship inclusion initiative which seeks to divert disaffected youth via a range of positive activities and accredited outcomes.
Brentford FC Community Sports Trust currently delivers Kicks Projects in Ealing and Hounslow Borough.
The scheme is designed to:
- Engage young people (aged 12-18) in a range of constructive activities
- Create routes into education, training and employment
- Encourage volunteering within projects and throughout the target neighbourhoods
- Break down barriers between the police and young people
- Reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the targeted neighbourhoods
- Increase the playing, coaching and officiating opportunities for participants
If you are interested in attending, volunteering or becoming a local partner of the Premier League Kicks Programme then please email email@example.com or call 0208 326 7030 for more details.
