As part of the Inspires programme, we also deliver a range of workshops around female empowerment, mental health and well-being and LGBTQI+ awareness. Next steps for Chelsea Foundation includes establishing an LGBTQI+ youth voice session at The Winston Churchill School, a local partner school in Woking.
Isaac Keighley, Chelsea Foundation’s education officer, said: ‘It’s been brilliant to see the excitement that has been created by the Premier League Inspires programme! All the groups are eager to impress and create the most impactful social action as possible – with a wide range of innovative ideas.
‘The highlight for me is seeing how much each student’s confidence has increased and how they are all now sharing their ideas, with clear leaders developing within each group.’
Valeria, a student taking part in the programme, added: ‘I have enjoyed being part of a team because I don’t always feel like that. I have learned a lot during the lessons, particularly about bullying and cyber-bullying.’
