NCFA are lobbying the custodians of football to support the Football & Peace projects by holding boxing day bucket collections at all football grounds. The aim is to bring young people together from diverse backgrounds and provide access to Flanders Peace Field where football will be played in the spirit of 1914, without brands, emblems, logos and the modern day trappings of consumerism. The game is the teacher, the teacher is football and the outcome will be young peace makers. Please click on Lay Down Your Brands for further details. If you, your club or organisation would like to donate money to support the project please click on the button below.
FAMILY SKILLS PROJECT The impact of the project is having a positive and lasting effect in the family, in school where children are performing better and able to show greater respect, passed to them from their parents. Supporting their child’s football, parents recognise the benefits in terms of self esteem, health and well being. They also see the value of responsible parenting and how this is passed onto their children in public spaces like football matches. There is clearly a feel good factor and a potential to roll the project out to a much wider community in its current form will provide further positive outcomes.
