The Hull FC Community Foundation are continuing their commitment to supporting young people with a disability, learning difficulties or a long-term health condition through the ‘This Ability’ project.

After a successful year in 2022, when a number of learners were rewarded for their application and effort with employment at local businesses, the Hull FC Community Foundation are once again recruiting new learners to grow their skills.

This Ability courses are made up of three key stages to help learners develop their skills and work their way into employment:
