Kicks & Social Inclusion

Lauded by partners, our work to engage disadvantaged young people, and to broaden and sustain participation of females in sport has produced tremendous results. As a founding member of the Premier League Kicks programme, we have a long history of engaging boys and girls aged 11-18 in areas of need. Our programmes have expanded over the years to include a greater variety of sports, as well as volunteer opportunities and the chance for participants to earn recognised qualifications.

We work with local authorities, including the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, the Homeless Football Association, housing associations, The Young Lambeth Cooperative, and programme participants to deliver activities that are appealing and relevant to young people. 

Our Kicks sessions take place across Hammersmith & Fulham, Merton, Lambeth and Kingston. All our sessions are free, young people aged 11 to 19 are welcome to attend. All abilities.

For further information on the days, times and venues our sessions take place, please contact Paul Smithers, Inclusion Coordinator on or 0870 442 5432.

In January 2018, Lucas Piazon headed to the Foundation's Kicks session in Kingston to find out what the community project is all about, and meet the young participants.
