Newcastle United Foundation is hugely proud of our Kicks programme and the impact it has on the lives of young people in our region.
Kicks helps young people achieve their goals through football. The aim is to engage young people in constructive activities, increase playing and coaching opportunities, break down barriers between the police and young people and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the target area.
Football coaching sessions and educational workshops take place twice a week, 48 weeks of the year. Over 600 young people take part in Kicks each year.
Kicks is funded by the Premier League via Sport England, Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Newcastle City Council, Gateshead Council and North Tyneside Council
The Foundation, in partnership with Four Housing, recently launched Kicks in Berwick which saw a record number of participants attending the inaugural session.
This year the boys and girls teams both reached the semi final of the national Premier League tournament, with the girls going on to take the title!
In many cases Kicks has been the starting point for many young people’s pathway through the Foundation. From Kicks we can introduce young people to NCS (National Citizen Service) and our Employability Programmes. Some exceptional young people have even gone on to work for the Foundation and the Club!
Kicks is an outstanding standalone project, but for those we engage with, it can be so much more.
