Kick London

KICK LONDON is about transforming young people’s lives with God’s love through football, and aims to apply Christian values in a way that combines:

·        Quality sports and football programmes
·        Integrated life skills training

We provide an innovative and engaging programme of sports activities that are set in an encouraging, inclusive, and supportive environment focussing on the holistic learning (physical, social, spiritual, and emotional) of each young person. Kick London was established in the London Borough of Richmond in 2003. It is a company limited by guarantee, and a registered charity.  It is overseen by a Board of Trustees who focus on the work of Kick London as it develops across the whole of the capital city and local management teams in individual London Boroughs.

Our F.A. qualified coaches provide curriculum-integrated sessions in mainstream schools and Pupil Referral Units (for excluded pupils), are engaged in other national and local government programmes for children and young people outside mainstream education. We undertake assemblies, breakfast, lunchtime, and after school clubs in mainstream schools, provide activities for the socially, geographically and physically disadvantaged and support the establishment of local academies providing training and sports skills for all – not just those gifted and talented.

Kick London is making a difference already working with 3,500 young people per week and we are currently seeking funding to support a step change in our organisation and develop a managerial and operations team to facilitate Kick London’s growth to reach 30,000 young people each week by 2012. Website:
