The COSARAF Foundation has made a multi-year grant to Birmingham Community Spirit (All Sports Women) to fund weekly inter-faith football sessions for women in North London. This is a positive programme for the Foundation as it meets all of our strategy objectives around community cohesion, supporting women and girls, and enabling young people to reach their potential.
All Sports Women sees women from different faith groups getting along and having fun through football every week. The grant has supports 40 regular players and 3 coaches who work together and sustain an engagement in physical activity. The football sessions have provided women with opportunities to take part in football in an inclusive, welcoming and non-threatening environment. This has developed their confidence and ability to work as a team to achieve a common aim.
