Funding via London United from the London Marathon Charitable Trust (LMCT) is used to increase the number of girls and young women aged 8 – 17 in the Kicks programme.
Premier League Kicks is a unique collaboration between 69 Premier League, English Football League and National League clubs. The nationwide initiative supports young people through weekly football, sport and personal development sessions.
Along with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Fulham, our Trust were one of the first community organisations to run the pioneering project back in 2006.
This year alone, the project has engaged with more than 800 young people in Brentford’s surrounding areas.
Sessions look to overcome some of the existing barriers to girls and young women’s participation and our coaches will look to ensure that all participants feel welcome.
