Palace for Life community-based sessions suspended from 4th January

From today (Monday 4th January 2021), Palace for Life Foundation will be suspending all of our community-based football sessions until further notice in order to protect the safety of our participants and staff.

With some schools remaining open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children, Palace for Life coaches will continue to support those schools as required. Our staff will be adhering to the safety procedures of the individual schools in order to keep everyone safe.

The suspension applies to the following sessions:

  •  Player Development Centres
  •  Goalkeeping sessions
  •  PL Kicks
  •  Weekend Wildcats Hubs
  • Disability football
  • Walking football
  •  Weekend football
  •  Women’s Recreational Football

Palace for Life Foundation CEO Mike Summers said: “We regret having to cancel our sessions, but we must do what we can to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and prioritise the safety of everyone who attends our sessions, as well as the wellbeing of our staff. I’m pleased to report that we will still be supporting local schools that remain open for the children of keyworkers and vulnerable children. A number of our targeted intervention and health groups will also continue to take place online. We hope that Palace Pad Chat, our innovative programme that uses gaming to keep in touch with vulnerable young people, will be back up and running as soon as possible. As of Tuesday 5th January, The Palace Kitchen will also be reopening for the rest of the month, providing 350 meals a day for those in the community who need that extra help.”
