The programme provides access grants of £500 for groups wishing to start offering football, those keen to expand their existing provision to new audiences, or those already delivering football to under-represented young people.

This includes girls, young people from racially diverse communities, young people with disabilities, young people from the LGBTQ+ community and those from lower socio-economic groups. 

Alongside the access grants, we have additional pots of funding and support resources for groups doing deeper impact work with under-represented young people.

Together, we will reduce the inequalities in participation and help all young people to benefit from taking part in football in their community.
