Community Cohesion Coaching and Motivational Programme in Lambeth

The Paul Canoville Foundation team, led by our founder and patron Paul Canoville, are delivering a series of sports coaching workshops to promote community cohesion in the Kennington and Stockwell neighbourhoods of South London.

Using sport as focus the team deliver coaching and small sided games to bring young people from across the community together to enjoy football, followed by motivational speeches and workshops promoting the importance of equality, respect and teamwork in schools.

In attending these sessions young people are also given an opportunity to engage Paul and the team and discuss the impact of racism Paul experienced in his time as a professional footballer, and the methods and tools he used to overcome those issues and remain a strong and committed individual in both his personal and professional life.

The session this week also saw the debut of the new Paul Canoville Foundation t-shirt design, featuring an iconic image of Paul in his playing days.
