Funded by the Laureus Foundation sport for good sessions take place in some of the most-deprived parts of Luton and aim to use sport for development programmes which enhance social and emotional development and healthy behaviour of children and young people in disadvantaged communities, reduce the impact of violence, conflict and discrimination in their lives and increase their educational achievements and employability skills.

The Premier League’s KICKS scheme seeks to engage young people aged from 11 to 13 years and from 14  to 24 years of age from areas of high need in football, sport and personal development by using football as a hook to engage, target and divert young people away from crime and ant-social behaviour.  Volunteering opportunities are also available for participants accompanied by numerous qualification and mentoring opportunities.

We currently run Sport for Good sessions each week in Luton during weekday evenings with free tournaments during the school holidays, with more than 80 young people taking part in sessions each week. The sessions are open to anyone aged from 11 years upwards and funding comes from the Laureus Sport For Good Foundation.
