Fulham FC is proud to be one of the founders of the Kickz programme, a national football scheme aimed at engaging boys and girls in areas of need within our local community. Fulham FC’s programmes are currently delivered in Lambeth, Merton, Kingston and Hammersmith & Fulham.
The objective of the programme, aimed at young people at risk of social exclusion, uses football and other activities to engage young people aged 13-19 in diversionary activities to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities.
Kickz is a football-based scheme that has developed through local partnerships with a number of agencies. It is based around professional club coaches taking football and other activities to the young people in the community, using local facilities, such as parks to reduce barriers to participation.
The scheme consists primarily of sports and youth activities delivered three nights a week throughout the year including coaching, regular competition, educational workshops and other activities determined by the young people.
Additional opportunities aim to develop local young people by encouraging volunteering and creating routes into training, qualification and employment pathways. For example sports coaching qualifications, training and gaining experience through voluntary roles.
