#ivefound is our participant-led impact campaign, developed to share the inspirational and personal stories of the children and young people who engage with the LFC Foundation.
The LFC Foundation engages over 15,000 children and young people every year, helping to improve the life and health chances of our participants. By delivering wellbeing, skills and community projects across the Liverpool City Region and beyond, we use the power of football and the Liverpool FC crest to engage some of the very hardest to reach.
Each #ivefound video highlights how the support of our amazing fans creates life changing opportunities for those in need.
Hills and Wills are a very special set of twins from Anfield in Liverpool. They are regular attendees to the IntoUniversity North Liverpool Centre, which supports children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their educational potential.
The North Liverpool learning centre offers after-school clubs, homework support and mentoring schemes, which aim to raise the aspirations and ambitions of school children. In fact, Hills and Wills have already become published authors!
Jusuf is from Wavertree in Liverpool. He became involved with the LFC Foundation by attending a free PL Kicks session at his local sports centre. It quickly became clear that Jusuf is a very talented footballer, he just never had the opportunity to shine.
He’s now an integral member of the Kicks Development Squad and represents the LFC Foundation at matches and tournaments across the region. Jusuf’s involvement with Kicks isn’t just about the game. It has inspired him to become a physiotherapist and he is determined to help people less fortunate through sports rehabilitation.
Jessie is not your average 12-year-old girl. She’s football-mad and has big aspirations to play for Liverpool and England Women’s teams in the future. Her favourite players are Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Leo Messi.
Jessie attends our Premier League Kicks Girls Football to supplement her training with the LFC Academy. Playing in mixed teams, she has shown the confidence to mix with young people in different communities. Jessie has inspired more girls to join our Kicks sessions and to play alongside boys.
