Our Premier League Kicks programme is for ANYONE aged 8-18 living in the city of Cambridge. We run free, turn up & play sessions across Cambridge.
Our aim is to increase sports participation in socially deprived areas to then inspire and empower Kicks participants to follow positive-pathways. This will become possible through being part of constructive activities on a consistent basis, which will increase personal development and provide participants with the opportunity to reach their full potential.
STATED AIMS ARE TO…
Increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities in football and a range of sports (8-18yrs)
Enhance physical and mental wellbeing, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills

Holiday Activities & Food Programme
Research has shown that the school holidays can be pressure points for some families.
For some children this can lead to a holiday experience gap, with children from low-income households being: less likely to access organised out-of-school activities, more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health & more likely to experience social isolation. Our work in the holidays tries to address this.
Working with the County Council, Circus Skills, Samba Drumming & Glow in the Dark Dodgeball are just some of the exciting activities to expect at a Cambridge United Community Trust Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) camp. Working in partnership with the amazing local charities such as Abbey People, we provide a programme which combines workshops, activities and food.

The Trust’s Activate programme is designed to promote physical exercise and healthy eating in young people and is free to attend for all primary and secondary age school children.
The sessions take place over three days and are hosted at three main venues: Coldham’s Common in Abbey, Nun’s Way Rec in Arbury and King George V Rec in Trumpington.
Each session is an hour long and consists of a warm up activity followed by organised games of football. All participants then take home a free meal supplied by Cambridge Sustainable Food.
