Premier League Inspires is a new school-based programme for children and young people aged between 11 and 25 years. PL Inspires targets young people at most need of support and delivery is bespoke to each cohort or individual.

Vision: To offer a world-class programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to support 11-25-year olds who are marginalised or at risk of not reaching their potential as they move through the education system and early adulthood, allowing them to develop personal skills, knowledge and behaviours that will benefit them throughout their lives.

Goal: To inspire children and young people to develop the personal skills and positive attitudes to succeed in life.

Outcomes:

  • Participants have improved physical wellbeing.
  • Participants have improved mental wellbeing.
  • Participants feel inspired and engaged.
  • Participants develop their skills and knowledge.
  • Participants have improved confidence and self-esteem.
  • Participants progress into education, employment or training.
  • Participants demonstrate more positive behaviours.
  • Participants demonstrate more positive attitudes (towards others, the future, etc.).

Social Action: Participants are given the opportunity to take part in a social action project.

The Albion Foundation provides support for Looked After Children in local secondary schools, with the aim of improving self-esteem and confidence and strives to be a consistent and positive role model to all young people.

The Albion Foundation also runs two separate evenings of ‘120 Club’ which is an out of school hours club, specifically for Looked After Children in school years 5-9 where young people can feel comfortable around others in their position whilst taking part in activities such as arts & crafts and cooking.  The Albion Foundation provides Looked After Children with holiday provision throughout the academic year.

In addition to this specific support, the Foundation supports Sandwell LACE Virtual School during their annual summer transition residential where young people in Year 5 and 6 spend four days during the summer holiday focussing on the skills needed to help them during the transition from Primary school to High school. Young people work to improve skills such as resilience, teamwork, organisation and independence.
