Following government advice surrounding Covid-19 and The FA's announcement confirming the postponement of grassroots football in England, all of the Foundation's community-based projects have sadly been cancelled.
As always, the safety and wellbeing of our participants and delivery staff is paramount and we need to ensure we're doing everything we can during these difficult times.
We'll be back soon, but in the meantime if you need some support click here!

Girls Without Boundaries
Working in partnership with Lancashire Cricket Foundation, this project has been designed to inspire disengaged young women by building confidence through mixed martial arts, self-defence, music and dance.
Over a six week period, participants are introduced to a range of basic Thai-boxing and self-defence moves and then work together as a group to incorporate them into their own unique dance routines.
Girls Without Boundaries is open to girls from Year 7 to 11 and is operated on a referral via school basis.
Wallsend Boys Club
The Michael Carrick Foundation has committed to support the club for the next three years by providing a capacity building grant which will help capitalise on recent facility developments.
The goal is to help develop local partnerships, raise funds and secure commercial opportunities so that it can continue to provide a safe space where youngsters and their families have the facilities, support and inspiration to thrive.
Carrick’s Kicks, is a free football programme providing youngsters aged 8 – 19 with opportunities to take part in constructive activities, learn leadership skills and complete qualifications that will support them in their future endeavours.
Delivered in North Shields and Byker in partnership with Newcastle United Foundation, the programme also strives to break down barriers between the police and young people and aims to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in local areas.

CARRICK'S BOOT ROOM
Carrick’s Boot Room
This campaign encourages people to donate their unwanted football boots or astro trainers so that they can be cleaned, recycled and gifted to someone who needs them.
The Michael Carrick Foundation is committed to ensuring that all youngsters, no matter their background or ability, have access to the equipment they need to take part and be the best that they can be.
With the generous support of Manchester United Foundation, Newcastle United Foundation and local grassroots clubs, during the last boot room campaign, one thousand pairs of boots were distributed to participants who had incorrect or ill-fitting footwear.
