End of Year Review 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, we have created our End of Year Review which looks at the successful impact our organisation has had on the community of West Lothian.

Scott Millar, the General Manager at the Foundation is delighted with the achievements the charity has accomplished over 2017.

“2017 has been an outstanding year for the Foundation. We celebrated our 5th birthday this year and during that time we have engaged with over 41,000 people, from the ages of two and a half to ninety one years old. Nearly 4000 sessions were delivered from Mini Kickers to Mental Health programmes, all having an impact on those involved.”

“The power of football and the positive impact it can bring on our communities is almost immeasurable, the future looks bright for West Lothian Youth Foundation and we can’t wait for 2018.”

We are delighted to release our End of Year Review for 2017 and invite you to read the document below.
