Football for Change brings together football stars and business leaders with a collective goal to change the lives of young people in some of the most challenged communities in the UK.
Backed by football icons including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jamie Carragher and Anthony Gordon, Football for Change supports young people by funding life changing projects in education, employment and sport.
Investing in young people who are facing social and economic barriers to reaching their full potential
Promoting football stars and business leaders, who have succeeded in the face adversity, as role models to drive social mobility
Targeting resources in neighbourhoods affected by low educational attainment and high levels of youth unemployment
Football for Change is about helping young people onto a positive path. It is footballers and business leaders coming together with a goal to help improve the life chances of young people from some most challenged neighbourhoods in the country. I know from growing up in Liverpool that it is needed now more than ever.”
Football for Change can change lives by giving young people who’ve often felt left out or left behind a fair chance in life. It is about giving them the tools to do something positive with their lives whether that be in education, employment or sport.
Football for Change is about giving young people from challenged communities a platform towards a brighter future. It is an incredible initiative which will change lives for the better. It is needed now more than ever.
As professional football players and worldwide known figures, we must be role models to society. Through Football For Change, we can make a difference in young people's lives, supporting them in their social, educational and sportive paths. With this platform, youngsters from challenged communities will be given the fundamental tools to prepare themselves for a brighter future. I’m truly happy to be part of this initiative and I hope that we can be an example to those kids that dream and aim to be better.
The impact of the recent pandemic has made these challenges even greater so this initiative is more important than ever. I'm pleased to be giving Football for Change my support. It will make a real difference.
Football for Change is a great example of footballers working together to help young people in some of the most socially and economically challenged neighbourhoods in the country. The pandemic has hit young people particularly hard so this initiative, which is working to deliver opportunities in education and employment, is needed more than ever. I am proud to support it.
Football For Change is a fantastic initiative that will do tremendous work to improve the lives of young people, in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the UK. I am proud to lend my support to it.
