Football project helps isolated adults in Molesey

Grants totally £5,000 from our Surrey Sports Fund and money donated from the Bishop of Guildford’s Foundation supported adults not in education, employment or training to participate in weekly football sessions.

This project is an expansion of the Trust’s existing adults’ football activities, all of which currently take place in evenings and at weekends. The aim is to provide a daytime football session, which meets the needs of those aged 16 and over, who are not in education, employment or training.

This project aims to get people active and provide an opportunity for them to meet new people, and access support. Often those who are not in education, employment or training are lonely and iscolated, making it harder for them to find help. Through this targeted project, they will be able to meet and interact with others and feel part of a team, joining in with community activities, often for the first time.
