The aim of the project would be to set up a 6aside social inclusion football league for community groups, charities and organisations working with the most socially excluded groups in Tyne and Wear including Homelessness, mental health, criminal justice, and addiction. The league would meet on a monthly basis with a one hour workshop on the morning tackling subjects such as resilience, team work, perception, responsibility which would be aimed at allowing players to look at their lives and work towards implementing changes within them. There would be an expectancy for teams/players to promote and develop the league as well as working alongside local organisations to create opportunities for progression both personally and as a league. The key thing is creating an environment that inspires growth and change and in order to do that all league officials would have lived experience of the needs outlined at the beginning
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
I believe that this project is something that will help bring those from multiple backgrounds in Tyne and Wear closer as well as showing that change is possible no matter what your background. We are using a sport that this region holds in such regards and has shown in the past that it brings communities together. We would be using those with personal experience of all issues to share their experience and help develop futures, showing that anyone can change with the right support and belief. As well as workshops aimed at tackling stigma we will be increasing health and fitness with a personal fitness plan for each individual who attends. The main difference in this project is that it will be run by those who know how it feels to be excluded, we believe that we all deserve an opportunity to discover who we really are. We will also work closely with local organisations to ensure that individuals can access Volunteering and personal development opportunities within and outwith the league
