SAS FC believes that poverty should not be a barrier to playing organised football. The ALMT is proud to be supporting the club by working together in implementing a stronger infrastructure and staff base to lift SAS FC’s profile and volunteer involvement in the local area.
The partnership, designed to last 3 years, will support the hiring, training and development of the Football Development Office role and will follow the club’s successes and monitor the achievements and advancements in volunteer led coaching sessions. SAS FC is run in partnership with Epic Partners, which specialise in working together to make a positive difference within disadvantaged communities. Its mission is to raise levels of aspiration and achievement by leading strong local partnerships between schools, children, families and local stakeholders. Football can develop skills, both physical and emotional, broaden experience and heavily contribute to creating well-rounded individuals. By developing the clubs infrastructure and equipment, the young people are empowered to strive harder to achieve. The ALMT also makes an annual donation to contribute towards the clubs travel costs for the teams.
