Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation is the charitable arm of Hartlepool United FC.
It exists to promote the club in the community and to deliver positive activities to people of all ages and backgrounds.
The Hartlepool Kicks programme involves diversionary sports provision run in targeted areas of Hartlepool.
The community-based evening sessions will use a combination of sport and other activities and run as informal turn up and play sessions, in targeted areas, as directed by Cleveland Police. The aim is to engage with young people not already taking part in more formal exercise or organised sport.
The project uses the power of sport to engage with young people. Sports’ activity helps to improve physical and mental wellbeing, together with improving self-confidence.
