Liverpool FC's official charity, LFC Foundation will be providing a host of free, fun face-to-face sessions and holiday camps throughout August, as part of its 'Summer of Champions' celebrations.
As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19, LFC Foundation’s face-to-face sessions were completely paused, meaning the charity switched to delivering sessions virtually to stay in touch with and support children and families.
Now with the changes to restrictions and government advice, many LFC Foundation’s usual activities are returning, but with added precautionary measures.
Matt Parish, LFC foundation director, said "Summer is always a fun and busy period for LFC Foundation, but this year we’re really going to enjoy seeing our young participants getting active whilst celebrating LFC’s Premier League title win.
"Summer of Champions, to us, is about not only celebrating the success of the first team, but celebrating and supporting each and every child and young person who has been living through some big changes and difficult times lately – you are our champions!
“The health and safety of our local community, fans, participants, players and staff remains our top priority at this challenging time.
"We have followed the guidelines set to ensure health and safety is met at all times and methodical planning has taken place, controlling numbers of participants per group, sanitisation stations and carefully considered delivery models.
"All equipment on site will be sanitised and cleaned thoroughly before, during and after use and parents will be asked to play their part during drops-offs and pick-ups.”
In an effort to support children and communities further, some camps and sessions will include healthy lunches supplied by Anfield’s catering teams.
- Premier League Kicks Football Plus programmes, one of which is inclusion specific.
- Premier League Kicks Camp targeting teenagers incorporating football and education, one of which is specifically for girls.
- James Milner Foundation-funded camps targeting 6-14 year-olds.
- Premier League Kicks Inclusion camps for disabled children and adults
