We are continuing to develop our structure to support participation in football, building partnerships and resources to manage and develop inspiring change projects.

Our project is an exciting football based health and wellbeing project for Primary School kids offering a platform for fun, physical activity and takes them on a weekly interactive educational journey to discover how they can stay active and lead a healthier lifestyle through diet and nutrition.

The project supports the Curriculum for Excellence's Health and Wellbeing outcomes as set out by the Scottish Government's Schools and to round off each weekly session, the kids are served a hot healthy meal which gives them an opportunity to enjoy some social time together.
