Football Beyond Borders

We use the power of football to help young people achieve their goals.

Charity Registration No. 1158046

Story

Football Beyond Borders works with young people who are disengaged with their education. We take a young person's passion for football and place it at the heart of their education.

It costs £400 for a participant to complete a full year of the FBB Schools programme. This includes at least 70 hours of football-themed learning in the classroom and on the pitch using our FBB Curriculum, as well as 6 remarkable reward trips.

In the current funding climate, schools are increasingly struggling to pay the full cost of the programme. 

I’ve been volunteering for FBB since September, and it’s been an awesome experience so far. Going to Sandringham Primary School on a Tuesday afternoon is one of the highlights of my week!

In my short time with FBB I have seen the impact that the organisation has on the young people it interacts with. The team truly do an amazing job of making young people feel valued and part of something bigger than themselves, which is awesome to see. 

So please help me raise some money so we can get even more kids part of this amazing organisation and make them feel great about themselves in the process!

Here is a video with my story!
