Each year, we engage with thousands of young people across west London.
Our youth projects aim to inspire and empower young people to achieve their life goals.
Our initiatives include:
Weekly multi-sport sessions within local communities.
Mentoring for young people who are at risk of negative influences – such as gangs or drugs.
Volunteering and training opportunities for young people.

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.
Established in 2008, Hounslow Street Sports is an unprecedented partnership between the Trust and Hounslow Housing. Delivered on seven key estates and many others throughout the year, the project encourages young people to make positive life choices through a range of free sporting activities.
Along with football, the project delivers boxing, ultimate frisbee, dodgeball, bike maintenance and educational workshops.
We also deliver local youth clubs – providing young people with a safe environment outside school to relax and enjoy educational activities.
Established in 2018 by David Dein MBE, former Vice Chairman of Arsenal Football Club and the Football Association, the Twinning project aims to bring together professional football clubs and prisons across the UK to provide positive pathways for participants and tackle high reoffending rates.
Held at Bronzefield women’s prison in Ashford, the project involves a ten-week training programme to upskill participants and offer them a positive pathway when they are released.
The course is accredited by the FA and will focus on helping prisoners develop leadership skills, form positive relationships, understand the laws of the game, and build their technical football skills in outdoor training sessions. The aim is for the participants to develop and demonstrate key qualities and skills for employment both within football and beyond once they are released.
Hounslow Youth Service
In January 2019, we began delivering youth services on behalf of Hounslow Council – offering young people in Hounslow a range of free sporting and educational activities.
The youth provision includes:
- support to young carers
- holiday youth provision
- detached youth work activity
- universal youth service activity.
With rising levels of youth violence in London, the project has been credited with creating a safe space for young people to enjoy sport.
