We use the power of sport to improve the health and wellbeing of our local communities particularly among hard to reach groups.

The Kinder + Sport Move and Learn project aims to get children active and teaches the importance of healthy living.

The project has been delivered by 26 club trusts and the Irish FA and over 62,000 children were encouraged into moving.

98% of  RE-FIT participants with Pompey in the Community feel more confident and less isolated from their community and 80% decreased their drug/alcohol abuse.

78% of participants say Walking Football has increased their level of exercise.

”For the first time in years it has allowed me to play a game I love and socially interact with people who are like minded.

”It has improved my social circle and I feel physically and mentally invigorated.”
