Premier League Works

The Premier League Works programme was designed to cater for young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), and to help them progress along their employment pathway and to achieve a person-centred outcome.

Our mission at MFC Foundation is to deliver an innovative combination of one-to-one support, personal development workshops, work placements and community action to inspire and support young people to realise their potential.

We run a 13 week programme delivered over two days each week (Thursday & Friday).  The programme is ran on a roll on roll off basis, making it accessible to young people at any time.  Throughout the 13 weeks each participant will complete the following elements:

120 hour Core Programme
Participants complete workshops that focus on developing their employability and life skills whilst also supporting them to develop functional skills such as English, Maths and ICT.

30 hours Work Placement
We work with each participant individually to identify and organise a work placement that best supports their employment goals.

Community Action Activity
Community action projects and activities are developed and organised by the group to not only develop their skills but also to contribute to the local community.

Sports Leaders Level 2 Qualification
This qualification is delivered to supports the participants with a number of personal and social skills such as communication, confidence, team working and leadership.

Throughout the programme we support the young people by giving them a Personal Development Plan that identifies their aspirations and gives them set goals.  Our Project Workers help the individual to work towards their goals and try to support them back into Education, Employment or Training.

Walk from Rockliffe to the Riverside

A local photographer from Teesside is hoping to raise money for MFC Foundation by walking from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium on Wednesday 26th August 2020.

Tom Banks owner of Banks Photo recently worked for MFC Foundation and was so amazed by the inspiring work the Foundation deliver across Teesside he decided he wanted to help support them.

Tom plans to walk the 25 mile route from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium and raise much needed funds for MFC Foundation.

Tom who is a keen walker said: “I was asked by MFC Foundation prior to lockdown to take some photos of several projects that they were delivering within the local communities. I was totally amazed to see the joy in the faces of the participants and it made me think that I wanted to do something to help.” He continued “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on all charities so I decided I would try to do my bit and fundraise for MFC Foundation. As a keen walker I decided that I would walk from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium to help the Foundation continue their inspiring work across Teesside.”

Andrew Buckley – Business Development Manager for MFC Foundation said: “Tom worked for us earlier in the year and was overwhelmed by some of our projects we are continuing to deliver throughout this pandemic.” He continued “As a LOCAL charity we are always grateful for any donations and help with our fundraising work so we are very happy to support Tom with his up and coming sponsored walk.”
