Kids 1st Extends Football For All Support

Newcastle United Foundation will continue its in-school disability football programme, Football For All, after childcare specialists Kids 1st committed to supporting the programme for a third year.

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare at Kids 1st , today presented Newcastle United Foundation Development Manager Sarah Medcalf with a cheque at their new nursery, Kids 1st QE, which is located at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead.

Kids 1st was recently named Highest Quality Childcare Provider in the UK for the fifth year in succession, and their support of Football For all will see the Foundation work with over 800 children aged 6-17 years in mainstream and special educational needs schools throughout Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and Northumberland. 

The 6 week course will be delivered in 45 SEN and mainstream schools across the region and includes include weekly in-school football sessions, after school clubs, satellite coaching centres, fixtures and competitions.

The aim of the programme is to provide opportunities for young people with disabilities to play and enjoy football, keep fit, make friends, have fun and raise confidence.

Helen McArdle CBE, Chairman of Kids 1st said: “The feedback we get about Football For All is superb – we know it makes such a huge difference to the lives of the participants.  We’re incredibly proud to continue to support Newcastle United Foundation in making such positive progress around the opportunities available for young, disabled children to play football and to experience the fantastic feeling of being part of a team.”

Newcastle United Foundation Development Manager, Sarah Medcalf, added: “The funding we have received from Kids 1st has been vital to developing Football For All and we are incredibly grateful for their continued support.  To see the project grow and increase engagement in the way that it has is testament to the commitment and hard work our coaches put in delivering at schools every day.”
