Family Football helps families enjoy learning together through football.
What is Family Football?
Family Football is a six week course for parents/carers and children to learn together through football. The programme, which takes place in schools or other community venues, aims to help create stronger, healthier families and will give adults the confidence to progress onto further learning and/or participation in regular healthy living activities.
Funded by Big Lottery Fund, Family Learning worked with 4,312 participants across 41 schools in 2015/16.
Everyone who takes part is invited to a special Celebration Event at St James’ Park to celebrate their achievements.
2,160 parents and children worked together through Family Football last year
