Northern Vision has worked with a number of charities over the years, and since its incorporation in 2002, it has collected more than £250,000 for local and national charities such as the R Charity, Leadership Through Sports, Alder Hey Hospital, Princes Trust, Habitat for Humanity, Cash for Kids, and Right to Play.
It is Northern Vision’s philosophy to work closely with charities to help children and get as many involved in sports as possible.
R Charity is the official charity raising funds for the Stroke Unit at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital, set to open next year.
Their aim is to provide and deliver a world-class standard of care to their patients using cutting-edge equipment and technology whilst offering a comfortable home-from-home environment for both individuals and families within our care.
The Stroke Unit at the Royal sees patients from across Merseyside and the North West throughout the year, treating and caring for around 700 patients. Although having a stroke is associated with the older generation, people as young as 21 are admitted and rehabilitated at the Royal, giving them the best possible chance of continuing to lead a relatively normal life. Getting stroke patients back on their feet is their priority, and what they do in the first few hours and days after a stroke patient has been admitted can make a huge difference to future lives.
Funds raised will pay for facilities and equipment that go above and beyond NHS provision, including single inpatient bedrooms, specialist rehabilitation chairs for stroke patients to aid recovery and comfortable family areas for loved ones.
Leadership Through Sport & Business
Leadership Through Sport & Business (LTSB) is a social mobility charity, set up and funded by business people, that uses football’s influence in the community to give bright young people who lack social capital access to high-level careers in business and finance. At the same time, they provide employers with a talent pipeline of bright young people who meet social mobility, diversity and bottom-line objectives.
LTSB’s life-changing 18-month programme doesn’t just improve employability; it results in employment. Through intensive training with LTSB, football foundations, education training providers and blue-chip companies, participants are developed personally and professionally and better prepared for the business world. After an intensive 4-month pre-employment programme, each young person is placed as an accounting/finance apprentice with a leading organisation. The programme continues to develop and support the young person throughout their apprenticeship. Over the past 6 years, the success rate has been incredible: they’re proud that 87% of the young people who have already completed the programme were in full-time paid employment within 6 months of graduation (or enrolled at university instead).
LTSB delivers programmes in Manchester, Birmingham and London, and this year, are very proud to be launching in Liverpool with Liverpool FC Foundation and Kaplan.
LTSB is grateful to the Qube Liverpool International Tennis Tournament and Anders Borg of Northern Vision for including LTSB in this prestigious tennis event. The charity applauds the goal of Northern Vision and their tennis programmes that enrich the lives of children in Liverpool through sport.
