Kickz - the innovative project that uses professional football to create safe, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people's potential - has just celebrated its fifth birthday.
Kickz has blossomed from four pilot clubs in 2006 to 113 local projects being delivered by 43 Clubs in the Premier League and Football League, and has helped more than 50,000 young people in 2011.
To celebrate this fact, a new publication has been produced.
The document includes:
- A guide to Kickz - what it is, its objectives, how it works, what it addresses and targets
- Kickz by numbers - the key statistics from the first five years
- Introduction and forewords from Richard Scudamore, Premier League Chief Executive, and Tim Godwin, Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner
- Personal case studies from the four clubs that piloted Kickz in 2006 - Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham and Manchester City
- A timeline of how Kickz has evolved from 2006 to 2011
- Case studies from those involved on the front line - the policeman, the partner, the volunteer and the participant
