ABOUT US

We are the

NATIONAL CHILDREN’S FOOTBALL ALLIANCE

We use football to engage young people through cross curricular learning and activities. We aim to get more boys and girls actively playing football.  We secure for them the most enjoyable, developmental and child-centered football experience when they do play. We work with: the third sector, education authorities, schools, groups, clubs, national and international football authorities.  We create playing environments and formats which allow children to reach their full potential through football. We aim to eliminate the factors which cause boys and girls to drop out of football.
To protect childhood through football for fun.

MISSION

To protect childhood through football for fun.

OBJECTIVES

The NCFA’s extended children’s focused organisations form a vital network of partnerships sharing best practice in all stages of childhood. The NCFA will be accessible to all communities seeking advice on the children’s game.

PRINCIPLES

The Children’s Football Alliance is a coalition of agencies and organisations that safeguard and advance the rights of children in football.

Globally, children contribute immeasurably to the game of football as players, as fans, as workers and in many other ways. Without doubt, the power of football to be an influential and dominant force for good in the daily lives of children worldwide is enormous.

As a humanistic voice and advocate for children, The NCFA also acts as a focal point and network for those individuals and organisations seeking sustainable partnerships, information, education and/or training on child-centred approaches and children’s rights in football.

The Children’s Football Alliance works tirelessly to better children’s lives.

PFP Wing Fields design choice_W300_H124

Supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund the NCFA are providing schools with the opportunity to twin their designated areas of play with the Flanders Peace Field. Working in partnership with the Peace Village, Messines, Belgium (site of the 1914 Christmas Truce) the Peace Field Project (PFP) invites schools, clubs and community groups not only to commemorate the First World War and the Christmas Truces but also to celebrate peace through
reflecting on a moment in history that inspires humanitarianism.

The PFP lends itself to cross curricular participation (sports, history, literacy, arts, humanities and citizenship), community cohesion and intergenerational relationships.

Schools are invited to sign a PFP Declaration, pledging to hold a games event once a year throughout the centenary years on their peace field to commemorate WW1 and celebrate peace.

The Peace Fields Project is open to primary schools, secondary schools and all sports clubs, promoting sportsmanship and equal opportunities.

Football & Peace Project commemorates the centenary of the First World War, the Football & Peace Project brings young and older people together from all cultures, discovering their families’ and communities’ heritage.

Communities will feel connected to the place where they live, they will share a common bond with aspects of community sport and the important role it played in World War One and continues to play today.

Schools, clubs, groups, partners and associations, are all welcome to contact Football & Peace, through the National Children’s Football Alliance.  F&P provides a platform for everyone, to share their stories, experiences and record their opinions in the centenary  years commemorating the First World War.  All the projects uploaded onto this site should contextualise the role of sport, at home, in the community and abroad – Then and Now.

Helen Grant MP added: “Sport is a brilliant way to bring people from all backgrounds together. As we count down to the start of our First World War commemorations, this unique Football and Peace event at Maidstone United FC, with the help of Heritage Lottery Funding, is giving the opportunity for young people to learn about the role sport played during war and peace time and is also a chance to forge long lasting friendships.”

Football & Peace works with a number of partners (featured below).  If you would like to support the work of recording, researching and documenting sport in your school, club, community and family, in the First World War, please contact: NCFA
