The ‘Platinum’ FAW accredited club applied for the Be Active Wales Fund in order to ‘Prepare’ to continue to provide opportunities within the community the clubs serves.
The club which delivers football provision to 350+ players in 20 age groups from U6 at Mini football to U16’s at junior football as well as Girls age groups, disability side and senior sides had an obligation to return safely with the well being of its members at the centre of their preparations.
The club utilised the £1,460 to train age group leads on Covid Awareness training through Welsh Sports Association, purchased valuable resources for age groups of sanitizers, disinfectant and Covid safe first aid resources as well as additional equipment necessary to return safely.
This has allowed the club to continue to offer its inclusive provision to the community in a Covid safe environment which has resulted in stable membership numbers.
If your club would like to apply for funding and require support, please get in touch with the Actif Communities Team or by visiting the COVID-19 support - Be Actif Wales Fund webpage.
