Palace for Life partner Levelling the Playing Field
Palace for Life Foundation are delighted to announce a three-year partnership with Levelling the Playing Field.
Palace for Life Foundation are delighted to have joined Levelling the Playing Field as a local delivery partner in Croydon.
Levelling the Playing Field (LtPF) uses the power of sport and physical activity to engage and improve health and life outcomes for young people who are more likely to enter or are already involved with the Criminal Justice System.
LtPF will specifically partner with the Foundation’s Premier League Kicks Programme, using football as a preventative measure for individuals in Croydon. Members of staff leading the sessions will act as mentors for those taking part, they are staff who have grown up in the local area so understand the difficulties and barriers that young people are facing today.
Together, Palace for Life and LtPF will use the power of Palace and football as an engagement tool to kickstart a more positive future for each individual.
Palace for Life Community Sports Manager, Roxanne Bennet, said: “This is a long-term programme and we’re looking forward to seeing a real impact and tangible changes over a period of time. This isn’t just a programme led by a coach with a badge to get someone better at football, it’s being led by people who can actually be there for the young people, to listen to them and understand what they are going through.”
Levelling the Playing Field’s Project Leader, Rudro Sen, said: “It is a privilege to welcome Palace for Life on board as a Local Delivery Partner on Levelling the Playing Field. They are very well-known and respected for their positive impact on young people in their community and their work aligns strongly with our common goals. We look forward to working together over the next three years.”
