The Birth of Footsteps 4 Life?
Footsteps 4 Life is a Sports Provision and Wraparound Care company founded by Tony Hadley and Nick Sharp in 2017. The idea of Footsteps 4 Life stemmed from wanting to create a positive impact on the children’s mental and physical well-being as there was a lack of opportunities with regards to participation in extra curricular clubs. This passion for health and well-being within children focused their attention on how they could improve this and provide a large variety of opportunities that the children had never tried before. Also wanting to solve a need for the parents, they wanted to be able to offer quality, affordable childcare that parents could rely upon.
They have since developed their ideas even further and created their own Programme of Sport and Well-being with a primary focus to enhance how sport is delivered and perceived. For the full document, please click here.
