Could you give the financial support to provide a young person with 12 months of learning, and help them on their pathway to employment?
We really need your support to help us to continue guiding our students through our learning programmes – giving them the opportunity to change their lives.
Each of our students has struggled within mainstream education. This could be for many reasons; academic or behavioural difficulties, experiencing trauma at home, or becoming involved in anti-social behaviour or crime. They have been referred to us to help guide them into training and development opportunities.
Our aim is that each of our students enjoys a better future. We want to enable them to make better life choices, and you could be part of that journey.
A donation of £1000 will support one of our students for 12 months. Your contribution will help us continue to create an infrastructure of skills, people, resources and facilities that means we can continue to use the values of Northampton Saints and the power of sport to Inspire, Support and Educate young people within our community.
In return for your sponsorship, we can offer you:
- Opportunities for your staff to volunteer on the programme with us
- Opportunities for our students to attend work experience with you or to become trainees/apprentices with you
- Invitation to attend the annual Students’ Awards event
- Priority booking period for our annual dinner with our Foundation Player Ambassadors
- Priority booking period for our Founder 15 Coaching Skills & Leadership Skills Workshops, delivered by our Volunteer Leadership and Development Consultants Doug Ferguson & Mel Hayward
We are incredibly grateful for any support you can give; it helps us to change lives and create positive futures.

Case Study – Amy
“Without the support of Northampton Saints Foundation, I dread to think where I would be. I had completely shut down from all support networks, but the Foundation staff gave me confidence in my own ability.”Amy, age 17
Amy joined us aged 15; after not being engaged in mainstream education, she would often abscond from school. Northampton Saints Foundation helped her to get the support she needed, including Mental Health, Drug Counselling, and local professional support.
Her confidence has grown since joining our programme, and Amy has completed qualifications in Level 1 Sports, Entry 3 in English and Maths, and is continuing her academic work with us – completing an Employability qualification. She has also secured a part-time job, something which she had not thought possible when she joined us.
