In partnership with Full Circle @Docklands Youth Centre, we run Football provision 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.
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.
Support Football Fridays
The sessions are clearly popular with these young people, shown by the number of young people that consistently attended the sessions. The attendance to the sessions demonstrates that the sessions are meeting the needs of the young people.
