Hull FC Rugby Foundation
The Hull FC Rugby Community Foundation is the official charity of Hull FC and it delivers a range of projects under four key principles - Participation, Education, Health and Social Inclusion. It works closely with schools, colleges and youth clubs to deliver sport and leadership qualifications
The Tribune Trust is pleased to to be able to support Hull FC Foundation with their Take the Lead project. The project will provide extra-curricular opportunities for young people in Hull to engage in high-quality physical activity sessions whilst working towards nationally accredited leadership qualifications. The project will focus on engaging young people from the ages of 14-19, particularly those who are not in education, employment, or training or who are at risk of this in the future.
Hull is an area of high deprivation, resulting in a number of barriers that prevent participation in extra-curricular activities and opportunities for personal development outside of school. The combination of high-quality physical activity sessions and the opportunity to gain leadership qualifications will improve the general health of participants and provide them with key skills and aspirations for the future.
Participants will have the opportunity to complete a variety of leadership qualifications, developing a number of skills such as communication, organisation and leadership. The qualifications will provide participants with an introduction to leadership, enabling them to lead or assist in physical activity sessions. Once the young leaders have completed the qualifications, they will assist in the creation of a number of physical activity clubs in local schools and youth clubs.
