We are delighted to have been awarded a grant from the Barclays Community Football Fund, being delivered in parnership with Sported. This grant will help us commit to providing weekly football sessions to Ladies living in and around Dacorum as part of our Community Kickabout initiative. In August 2022, after running popular Men’s Over 30’s Football games for two years, we trialled two Ladies only sessions (with no age restrictions) at Hemel Hempstead Town FC. We had a fantastic response and organised another two in September that were competed with a lot enthusiasm, hence our approach to Barclays and Sported to apply for funding towards securing a long term booking of Hemel FC’s 5G pitch.
Subject to online booking to confirm availability, you can just turn up and play in our friendly games – you don’t need to rely on having enough players to book your own pitch or even be part of your own team, just register and play!
The Barclays Community Football Fund launched in 2022 will be offering grants and support resources to grassroots groups. The fund will primarily support young people in deprived or underrepresented areas through local organisations, many of whom are not yet benefitting from the wider football pyramid.
Sported is the largest network of community sports groups in the UK, supporting more than 2,600 groups to help disadvantaged young people build confidence, gain skills and get their lives on track.
Our sessions take place on FIFA Pro standard all-weather artificial grass at Hemel Hempstead Town FC, Vauxhall Road; our matches are an easy, affordable and friendly opportunity for anyone to get active. Our initiative was the Active Dacorum winner in the 2022 Dacorum Borough Council grant awards and we’re also supported with kit and equipment through mental health charity CALM’s Caring United campaign.
