    Can You Help Fund Our Young Carer Days?

    Kids Initiative (KI) are delighted to be working with BCP and their officers who look after the many young carers under their care. KI is paying for the hire of venue and the coaching costs for up to 30 children to come and have a funday of football for 5 days during the summer holiday.

    Due to their family circumstances, getting to and from the event is costly. We are looking for donations and sponsors to help us fund. the taxis and mini buses  that will be needed to get the children there and back.

    The cost per day we anticipate to be in the region of £400.

    For more information please contact us using the form below and one of the team will be in touch shortly.

      Somerford Youth Centre


      As part of our summer program, we are once more working with the Somerford Youth Centre to provide their children with 3 days of football and multi-sports fun during the summer holidays.

      The Somerford Youth Centre is run completely on grants and donations and receives no local authority or government funding. It runs an amazing program of evening and holiday activities, looking after the well being of hundreds of local children in what is one of the most deprived areas of the UK.

      In the past children from the Centre have had to travel by minibuses from Christchurch to attend our camps in Bournemouth so we are particularly pleased to have been able to secure the facilities of Grange school in Somerford to host this summer’s events.

      BCP Young Carers Soccer Coaching Days


      In conjunction with BCP’s Young Carers department, we are hosting full day football and multi-sport camps every Wednesday for children in their care for 5 weeks of the summer holidays.

      There are in excess of 400 children and young adults across the BCP area who have the unrelenting responsibility of looking after or providing care for family members. The freedoms and fun that most children enjoy is denied them so we are delighted to be able to offer these deserving children a day off to come and have some fun and exercise.

      The camps are being held at Longfleet school, Poole and we are providing places for 30 children per day.

      In conjunction with The Gale Foundation Trust we are looking to raise the required £2000, please donate below.

      JUST GIVING APPEAL: link to follow


      We are looking to raise £2,000 (£400 per day) to cover the cost of taxis and minibuses for 5 weeks in order to get the children safely to and from the event. Please donate through Just Giving to help us give these kids a break! Thank you.

        Trident Summer Soccer Coaching Sessions

        Soccer Coaching For 5 to 13 Year Olds

        Poole Town FC’s Kids Initiative, in conjunction with its juniors club, Poole Town Wessex and our coaching partners, Champion Sports Group, are excited to be hosting a varied program of FREE and heavily discounted coaching sessions for children across the BCP conurbation through the summer months. The events vary from hour long to full day camps and will cater for ages from 5 – 13 years old.

        Although named a summer program, the fun actually started back in May with our free Saturday morning MiniKicker sessions for Reception and Year 1 children, supplemented further in June by free MiniKicker and Juniors sessions for Reception to Year 4 on Monday afternoons. Whilst the Saturday sessions will cease in July, until the start of the new season in September, the Monday afternoon ones will continue until the 23rd August 2021. On Fridays during August we will be running free, 2-3 hour, morning mini camps on the Astro pitch at Ashdown Leisure Centre, Canford Heath, Poole for children aged 5-13 years old.

        Starting in the first full week of the summer holidays we will be hosting 5 weeks of full day (9am-3pm) football and multi-sport camps, 3 days a week at 2 venues across BCP. 2 days of each week have been dedicated for BCP’s young carers and for the children of Somerford Youth Centre. The other day at Longfleet school (Poole) on Tuesdays are available with FREE places available for children eligible for free school meals for age group 7 to 13.

        FREE places for these days are limited so please act fast, use code TSSC21 at checkout.

        In addition, through the same 5 week holiday period, and in conjunction with BCP Council and The Parks Foundation, we will be hosting hour long footie sessions for the 7-13 year old age group at Winton Rec on Wednesday afternoons and Watermans Park, Somerford on Thursday or Friday afternoons. Last, but not least, we are in the process of organising monthly, hour long events for several of the children’s charities we work with. More details soon.

        We are extremely grateful to the Pitching In Trident Leagues - who have made the Pitching In Community Grant available to us, and to our sponsors for their donations to make it all happen.
