Ensuring the safety and welfare of Foundation staff and beneficiaries is a priority and we are monitoring the Coronavirus situation as it unfolds.


This is a rapidly evolving situation and our plans will be adapted accordingly.


Based on the latest government advice and advice from football authorities, funding providers and local partners we have taken the decision to:


    • Postpone all matchday related activities until it is safe to resume;
    • Suspend all face-to-face community and education activities until further notice;


    We are continuing to support children, young people and families to achieve their full potential in the following ways:


    • Providing remote learning opportunities through our education and employment programmes;
    • Supporting those who need us most through video conferencing and telephone calls;
    • Using our communication channels to share public messaging to help keep our communities safe and support a local response;


    We will continue to offer support to our beneficiaries via distance learning, with learning taking place up until the scheduled Easter break 6-17 April.

    We will continue to monitor the situation over the Easter period.

    We remain committed to supporting our communities. We’re working closely with partners to support a local response and our team will continue to adapt and innovate to support those who need us most.

    - Gavin Hawkey, Foundation Director
