Sports Fun 4 All aims to support 3 – 21 year olds through the provision of sports based activities in order to:
- Create safe, positive learning environments for children and young people that will help them to live healthier lives, improve their mental and physical wellbeing and reduce social isolation;
- Remove barriers to accessing high quality facilities that will empower children and young people to use sport as vehicle for change in their community through volunteering opportunities; and
- Develop children and young people’s soft skills and provide opportunities to access accredited qualifications and training that will increase employment opportunities.
SF4A’s object are to advance in life and relieve the needs of young people living in London through the provision of recreational and leisure time activities provided in the interest of social welfare, designed to improve their conditions in life, so as to develop their capabilities that may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society.
SF4A initially started off delivering two football projects at Bellingham Green and Downham Health & Leisure Centre funded through Lewisham Assembly Funding.
Once the funding finished in December 2016 there was so much demand from the players and parents we decided to continue these sessions as paid sessions. We moved the Bellingham Green Session to Goldsmiths Community Centre but after much success we outgrew this and moved to Forster Memorial Park in April 2017. In June, we started at a Sunday session and have been going ever since.
