Football Beyond Borders

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

Charity Registration No. 1158046

Story

Football Beyond Borders (FBB) 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.

The young people I have met from FBB programmes have a renewed sense of self belief, joy and focus. If we can give young people motivation, confidence, a safe space to express themselves and learn, a community to feel a part of, then maybe we can go some way to cutting down young suicide, knife crime, drug abuse and many other resulting endemics. 

In 2016/17, FBB school groups saw 31% fewer incidents of bad behaviour, a 48% improvement in Teacher Assessed Attitude to Learning and an average attendance rate of 95.4%. 
26 Miles is a long way - help me run and enable more young people to benefit!
