In partnership with Full Circle @Docklands Youth Centre, we run a football club for an average of 60 local young people at St Pauls Sports Academy.
In particular, we try to engage inactive young people aged 14-19 to increase their physical activity, improve their physical and mental well-being and support their communication and social skills.
The club is unique in running on a Friday, when there is little youth provision in the area, and in continuing throughout the school holidays.
In 2019, the programme was funded by Wesport, Safer Bristol and Full Circle @Docklands. For 2020 we were very happy to receive funding from Avon and Somerset Police in addition Wesport funding, allowing the club to continue for another year.
Support Football Fridays
Our Football club relies on external funding to keep going, so we can continue to offer discounted session costs for young people that need it. If you or your organisation would like to support the club, please get in touch with us.
Here are some examples of what your support could do.
