Side by Side

The LFC Foundation and Right To Play are standing Side by Side, using the power of sport and play to transform the lives of vulnerable children at home and away. 

Our partnership enables children in the world’s most deprived communities to access our innovative and high-impact programmes in safe and secure play spaces, enabling them to develop the skills they need to overcome adversity and reach their potential.


Could provide a hygiene kit so children and families can access our community programmes safely


Could help provide a child with a ‘back to school’ kit to support their education


Could fund weekly play sessions for a family of four


Could fund new equipment for community play spaces

Vulnerable children need our support

Since launching in 2019, Side by Side has supported over 40,000 people in Liverpool and Bangkok through sport and play programmes and community events.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit vulnerable children hard. Hundreds of millions of children have been out of education and are at risk of dropping out permanently. The pandemic has affected young people’s mental health and is pushing their families into poverty. Girls are especially affected by social isolation, as a surge of child marriage and domestic violence puts them at a greater risk than ever before.

No child should have to experience this.

Donate now to help children recover

The LFC Foundation and Right To Play are committed to a world in which every child is protected, educated and empowered to overcome barriers and embrace opportunity.

We have set ourselves an ambitious target of raising £150,000, allowing us to expand into other high need communities, helping more children rise above the adversity caused by the pandemic.

We're calling on the LFC family to help us reach this target. A small donation from you can mean a brighter future for a child who needs it most. Together we can reach our goal and change the lives of thousands more children.

Side by Side, we can do anything.
