To celebrate World Autism Week 2020 (March 30 to April 5), the LFC Foundation wanted to highlight one of its many fantastic participants, Amy Courtenay.

Amy, 16, attends the LFC Foundation’s Kicks Inclusion programme every weekend at Woodchurch Leisure Centre on the Wirral.

For over eight years, Amy has been attending the sessions, which focus on ability and not disability, and through her continued participation she has developed her skills and confidence. 

Amy, who attends a local SEN school with some of the participants from the Kicks Inclusion session, is an avid football fan and is a season ticket holder at Tranmere Rovers.

Amy and some of the female participants had the opportunity to help out at the LFC Women versus Everton Women game at the end of last season.

Amy, who has autism along with a chromosome impairment, could not participate if it wasn’t for her super mum, Helen. Helen is a massive advocate of the LFC Foundation and also loves to catch up with the staff and the other parents and guardians over a coffee.

Everyone at the LFC Foundation is so proud of you Amy – well done and keep up the hard work.
