The Wolves Foundation began life as a community team for the Warrington Wolves RLFC prior to becoming a registered charity in August 2005.
The Foundation aims to harness the power of sport to create and inspire communities and has three key areas of work:
Health & Social Welfare: We look to enhance the quality of life by promoting healthy lifestyles to all ages, backgrounds and abilities within the community. We tackle key health issues for all, create wider activities for people with disabilities and hold inclusive activities for disadvantaged and harder to reach communities. Activities include: working with the homeless and young offenders by providing leadership courses in sports and dance. Running after school, holiday and curriculum time activities.
Young People: We inspire our community by providing our young people with pathways to participate in positive activity. We work with partners to provide diversionary activities, create sporting and physical activities and engage with young people to strengthen their communities. Activities include: leadership courses, holiday activities, work experience opportunities.
Education: We look to create an environment to support learning and to contribute to the improvement of attainment, confidence and employability. We host Sports Leadership Programmes, volunteering opportunities, work placements and are home to a modern and welcoming learning environment. Activities include: opportunities to learn about the media industry, leadership courses and informative assemblies.
Each year the Foundation makes contact with over 20,000 people.
