These young people have gained their FA level 1 & 2 qualifications in Football and a multi-sports activator qualification. They are all extremely enthusiastic about helping their peers progress onto positive pathways and believe in the work that we do.

“Helping younger people discover their passions and realize their potential is vital. BIGKID leads the way in providing practical programmes that make this a reality for those that are often overlooked. This gives so much to not only the children involved but the communities they belong to. Having come from an area that could benefit from BKF, I am thrilled to directly support such a worthy cause."

Our Volunteers

We are very privileged to have over 50 volunteers who work across our programmes to help make a difference in the lives of the young people we work with. The majority of our volunteers are young people who have come through our programmes themselves and are now giving back to their communities.

Without their support, enthusiasm and energy it would be very difficult to make the impact we have on our young people.

If you would like to volunteer with us in any capacity, we would be more than happy to sit down and have a chat with you about it. Click here to find out more:
