Premier Foundation

As a not for profit charity the Premier Foundation focuses on working within the community to engage with Young People who are disengaged, disadvantage or classed as “hard to reach” by providing them with opportunities which they may not have previously had exposure to


The Premier Foundation uses the power of physical activity and performing arts as a vehicle not only to make a real difference to the health and well-being of the nation but to actively change lives of young people, building skills and personal development uplifting them to aspire to more.  Using sport, physical activity and performing arts in combination with this can change the pre-determined path that may have been set out for a young person. The sessions involve employability skills such as team working, communication and problem solving.
