Through our meetings and general consultation with our group we are aware of people in our community who are not accessing sport activities due to their financial hardship and this is causing an impact on their wellbeing.
Our football sessions: We encourage people from all cultures to get involved to help integration which is key for people’s wellbeing. We will be encouraging those from ethnic minorities as over half of black and minority ethnic (BME) communities do no sport or physical activity.
Fewer than 1 in 5 members of some BME communities are participating in physical activities as infrequently as once a month. (Information from Sporting Equals).
