Active Through football

Active Through Football is an exciting new programme from Sport England, funded by the National Lottery and delivered by the Football Foundation, that will support communities in Birmingham get more active, by identifying and working with key target audiences, who face some of the greatest inequalities to being physically active. We want to increase activity levels and create sustained behaviour change using a ‘Place-based approach.’

The programme brings key local stakeholders together as a consortium to create and deliver a plan for their local area or ‘Place’. The plans will be based predominately on activating key settings through the delivery of recreational and informal small-sided football activity and developed through community engagement

Starting on 2022, this programme will be delivered over 5 years and is currently delivered at The Mutah Trust Centre, B11 1AR, every Monday from 6-8pm.

"After a long time out of the game I didn't know if I'd ever be playing football again, but the sessions have allowed me to build my confidence slowly and my fitness is getting back to the levels it used to be at as a result. I love being able to talk and have a laugh each week as well. I would 100% recommend these sessions to anyone looking to get into football like myself."
