Impact & Policy

Since 2011 we have provided 1800 young women and girls with over 2 million contact hours of 1-1 therapeutic mentoring, group sessions, football coaching and extra curricular opportunities. 

We use nationally validated measures to track mental health and learning, with proven outcomes. 

This approach has been recognised by Dove England, London Youth, Sports England and our partner schools to significantly develop physically and emotionally healthy young women through football in schools.
