Building on our existing relationship with the FA and a number of professional football clubs, we will combine clubs’ networks, initiatives and community reach with that of local schools, colleges, community groups and so on. This will encourage sharing of best practices and expertise and inspire young people by using the power of Football to educate them on matters that impact them most. The training tackles the root cause of discrimination and develops participants’ confidence awareness, sensitivity and identity within society. This is achieved by implementing fun and interactive activities, using a combination of visual, aural, physical and verbal learning methods to appeal to all learning needs. It teaches valuable and practical skills for future participation in sport as well as in education, jobs and careers.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our approach is very much geared towards protecting England’s communities by preventing the development of conditions in which a lack of cultural understanding or sensitivity can develop into prejudice and ultimately lead to hate crime or racial violence. Tackling hate will increase the ability of people to recognise prejudice and understand and actively challenge it’s causes, intervening earlier to reduce the risk of anti-social behaviour, prevent offending through creating a climate of non-acceptance and recognising and minimising the risk of those most vulnerable to the impact of hate and violence. We also want through the project to provide a platform for victims to share how being subjected to hate and prejudice made them feel by providing a safe space for discussion and encourage the development of peer to peer support, easing the isolation many victims can feel when the initial support from emergency services ends.
