The Leeds United Foundation is committed to using its football brand to enhance the lives of people across our region through opportunities in sport, education, and healthier lifestyles.
Football has a magical ability to connect and energise communities, whilst also often helping those people who have fewer chances in life. The aim of the KICKS programme is to connect with these disaffected youngsters, building safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people's potential.
Through offering additional opportunities for children and young people to develop their character, resilience and determination, we are a service to inspire a change in behaviour, whilst developing their social responsibility and skills for their future.
