Amateur Football Project

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).



Through our meetings and general consultation with our group and women requested, West African Development UMOJA Community Support’s aims of this proposal are to put on a women and BME women in respect and empower in the leadership involvement and to put on celebration event for International Women’s Day which will provide an opportunity for women in greater Manchester  and elsewhere to get together to discuss a range of issues around health and wellbeing. This will include:Domestic and sexual violence and family issues, prevent women and youth crimes, keeping fit and advise in SmokingHealthy eating.



Through our meetings and general consultation with our group and the public we are aware of people who have no idea about the benefit and value of African culture. This has an impact on their wellbeing making it difficult to participate and contribute to cultural exchange in the society. The western in particular this minority with children migrant to UK need real help with basic understanding of the culture before they can consider is value.   The overall aim of the project is to encourage the community to socialise, integrate, cultural awareness, learn and try new things, be physically and mentally healthy and raise people’s self-esteem.
