Black History Month has once again been observed throughout the UK, promoting and celebrating black history and heritage in our communities...
In line with the return of the school term, our Premier League Kicks project has been back up and running in local communities across South Wales.
The project provides a safe environment for young people to take part in free, fun football sessions after school and provides them with opportunities for personal development.
The Foundation works with partners to provide support for our beneficiaries and help them develop the knowledge and skills to stay safe in their communities.
Street Doctors meet some of our participants at Eastern Leisure Centre
One of these partners is Cardiff Street Doctors, an organisation that works with young people to put them at the centre of emergency first-aid provision and empowers them to become part of the solution to violence.
Having worked with Street Doctors on several occasions, our Premier League Kicks participants are always keen to get involved and learn more about how they can support their communities.
Young people at our session in Eastern Leisure Centre in Rumney worked with Street Doctors on how to react should they come across/be involved in an incident where an individual has been knocked out or bleeding.
The workshop consisted of visual demonstrations and a Q&A with Street Doctors’ staff, before participants had a go at the activities to prepare themselves for real-life scenarios.
This, mixed with a small-sided game delivered by our Premier League Kicks coaches, made for an enjoyable evening for all involved.
Our Premier League Kicks sessions take place throughout the week at numerous sites across South Wales for juniors (ages 11-13), teens (ages 14-19), and girls-only (ages 8-16).
