Tigers Trust keeping communities safe through Premier League Kicks

21 July 2022

Children, young people and adults deserve to feel safe in their own communities, which is why the Tigers Trust are supporting ASB (Anti-Social Behaviour) Awareness Week (18th–24th July).

The Tigers Trust has delivered the Premier League Kicks programme since 2010 and engages with young people to encourage them to play football and take part in positive activities to enable safer and more respectful communities.

A total of 3,026 young people (aged 8-18) have engaged across over 950 of the Trust’s Premier League Kicks sessions in Hull.

The programme also provides targeted provision which has been designed to divert young people away from criminal exploitation by forming trusted relationships.

The Tigers Trust work in partnership with different organisations such as Hull City Council’s Vulnerable, Exploited, Missing and Trafficked team around the City of Hull to raise awareness of child criminal exploitation.

In the 2021/22 season alone, the Trust delivered 126 individual targeted sessions to young people who were identified as being at risk.

When speaking about what he’d be doing if he didn’t attend the sessions, one participant said: “It’s not good to say, but if I didn’t attend the sessions, I’d be on the streets causing trouble with my mates.

“When I need someone to talk to, though, Tigers Trust are always there for me.”
