The Foundation’s five year vision and the purpose of the project is to provide accessible and free structured coaching, health and well-being sessions to vulnerable community groups across the Wirral and at our facility sites. The UTS Foundation will work in partnership with a range of agencies, such as the NHS, police, youth service, youth offending teams, schools, colleges and youth clubs to help and support these people. UTS also has excellent links with partner agencies and local clubs, which will allow the Foundation to signpost individuals to sports, activities, clubs and professional groups who can work with the Foundation to help these people to reach their goals and full potential.
