Big Lottery Fund Awards Newcastle United Foundation £304,000 Grant For Family Learning

Newcastle United Foundation has been awarded a £304,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund for its successful Family Football programme. 

This new funding will help the Foundation engage with over 700 families across Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and Northumberland over the next three years. The Foundation has delivered Family Football with Big Lottery Fund funding since 2009 and in 2015/16 4312 parents/carers and children took part in the programme across 45 schools. 

Family Learning is an after school programme for children and their parents or guardians that aims to create stronger, healthier families whilst also aiming to give participating adults the confidence to explore further learning.

The programme combines classroom based learning with physical activity and football to promote enjoyment in learning, making it less daunting for parents taking their first steps back into education.

Kate Bradley, Head of Newcastle United Foundation, said: “We’re thrilled, and extremely grateful, to have this continued support from the Big Lottery Fund.  Family Learning makes a huge difference to the lives of the families we work with, helping improve confidence and encouraging healthier lifestyles. This funding will help us reach even more people and enable us to have an even greater impact in our community.”
