Jason Roberts Foundation
I am delighted that the opportunity has been created for me to establish my charitable Foundation. The Jason Roberts Foundation was launched in May 2007 in the UK and in June 2007 in Grenada and is a registered charity.
The Foundation has been a dream of mine for some time now and was established to:
- Provide opportunities for children and young people to participate in sports and cultural activities in the UK and in the Caribbean
- Encourage young people in the UK and in Caribbean to participate in structured sporting activity, which will contribute to improving health and fitness, self esteem, confidence and social inclusion
- Provide opportunities for young people to participate in learning programmes, which will enhance educational achievement
Develop a Sports Academy in Caribbean, which is accessible to children and young people across the island.
- Work in partnership with key public, private and voluntary sector partners to deliver high quality provision
I have great hopes for the Foundations future and success in the UK and the Caribbean and am please that the Foundation has got off to a flying start by delivering football programmes for young people in the UK and also Grenada.
