Kinetic Foundation is delighted to announce we will be reuniting once again with Rutland Partners as our official charity partner in 2022. Kinetic Foundation’s ten-year anniversary in 2021 marked 10 years since the London riots, the catalyst for the founding of the charity, co-founded by James Fotheringham and Harry Hudson.

Kinetic has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Rutland, becoming their official charity partner of the year in 2017. Since then, Rutland has kept their ties with Kinetic, alongside working with other charities, hosting an annual 5-a-side football tournament to raise funds for Kinetic’s important work within the community working with disadvantaged young people from South London, and more recently expanding our resources to include programs within North London schools.


Kinetic delivers a wide range of educational services and opportunities for disadvantaged young people, helping them to keep active, learn new skills and improve their employment prospects. Every young person that joins Kinetic has their own individual life challenges but the team at Kinetic helps them to work through them to reach their full potential, whether on the football field, in further education or a long-term career path.

Nick Morrill, managing partner at Rutland Partners, said: “We are delighted to be officially partnering with Kinetic once again. James and Harry have worked tirelessly over the last 10 years to provide an essential service for disadvantaged young people within the London boroughs. Their work instills lasting change in young people’s lives, and we are proud to be able to help them to continue their vital work going forward.”

Thank you to Executive Principle Nick Soar for hosting us at Harris Academy St John’s Wood as Rutland Partners joined us at a training session for our U16s-U18s led by Head of Kinetic Academy Coaching Eddie Munnelly and Kinetic Coach/HASJW Player Liaison Officer Lee Hayes.
