Newport County AFC support Kidscape

Newport County AFC is proud to be supporting our charity partner Kidscape at Monday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Bolton Wanderers.

Players from both clubs will show their support by wearing Kidscape t-shirts to highlight the work the charity is doing in raising awareness of bullying and the impact it can have on children and young people.

Club officials and staff will also be showing their support for the charity by wearing pin badges at Rodney Parade.

The charity will also feature in our Exiles Matchday Live show on our Facebook page prior to kick-off.

Kidscape give hope and help to thousands of children and families each year and work with communities to not only help keep children safe, but to enable them to thrive throughout their lives.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many children have experienced isolation and loneliness while living in lockdown. Kidscape have, however, continued to offer their help and support during the pandemic by providing informative online workshops for children and their families.

Kidscape's Regional Manager for Wales, Carole Phillips, said: "Kidscape have been a charity partner with Newport County Football club for almost a year and it has been a pleasure working alongside everyone, to support children, parents and carers in understanding the dynamics of bullying and how to deal with negative behaviour.

"Several Newport County AFC staff have participated on our Community Leader training programme which equips them with the knowledge of how to recognise bullying and support children and young people with whom they work with.

"When we are able, Kidscape are looking forward to returning to the ground and meeting the children and young people face to face and continue with our partnership."
