Community Trust receives award from Barclays Community Football Fund

May 18, 2022 Jim Green

Chester FC Community Trust is delighted to have been awarded a grant from the Barclays Community Football Fund, being delivered in partnership with Sported.

The grant will help the Community Trust to extend its disability football provision with the launch of a new Adult PAN-Disability Football session.

The weekly session, based at the new King George V Sports Hub, will be open to adults with a disability or additional needs, enabling participants to play football and be active in an inclusive setting.

The Community Trust currently runs a successful Junior PAN-Disability Football programme for ages 7-15 and the new sessions will ensure the same opportunities are available for adults with disabillities too with the grant being used towards the costs of kit, equipment, coaching, training and facilities.

If you or someone you know would be interested in attending the Adult PAN-Disability Football sessions, you can register your interest here.

The Barclays Community Football Fund launched in 2022 will be offering grants and support
resources to grassroots groups. The fund will primarily support young people in deprived or
underrepresented areas through local organisations, many of whom are not yet benefitting
from the wider football pyramid

Sported is the largest network of community sports groups in the UK, supporting more than 2,600
groups to help disadvantaged young people build confidence, gain skills and get their lives on track.

The Community Trust is grateful to Barclays and Sported for supporting our work.
