Among the programmes on offer is, during term time, a national schools programme inviting children to participate in a range of exciting activities and resources based on football skills, which also encourage healthy living schemes and a positive attitude to sport in general.

As partner charity, the David Beckham Academy will sponsor a range of SHINE’s educational programmes and children from some of these projects will also have the fantastic opportunity to attend the Academy!
