Future Pathways expands to Caerphilly…

The Foundation is expanding its engagement element of the Traineeship programme as we look to work with even more young people who aren’t currently in education, employment or training.

Setting up a brand-new hub in Caerphilly Leisure Centre, our engagement programme offers young people the opportunity to unlock their potential without the pressures of mainstream education, supporting them into further education or employment.

PL Kicks visit Plymouth…

Participants from the Bluebirds Charity’s Premier League Kicks sessions in Bridgend travelled to Plymouth to take part in the #PLKicksSW tournament hosted by Plymouth Argyle Community Trust.

The young people involved were chosen to represent Cardiff City Football Club as a reward for their commitment to their Bridgend sessions, one of the 11 sites that run across South Wales every week.

Getting started with football…

In collaboration with Prince’s Trust Cymru, the Foundation welcomed young people onto the Get Started with Football course at Rhondda Fach Sports Centre in Tylorstown.

Working with Bluebirds Charity and Prince’s Trust coaches, participants earned Leadership and First Aid qualifications, as well developing key skills including teamwork, communication and self-confidence.


February half-term Soccer Schools…

Over 350 junior Bluebirds from across South Wales joined us during the half-term break at the Foundation’s Soccer Schools.

With surprise visits from the likes of Neil Etheridge and Joe Bennett, we hope everyone enjoyed their time with us and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
