As we begin a new year, we look back at some of the organisation we have worked with over the course of 2017.
Merkinch Football academy
This club aims to deliver football activities and to create volunteering opportunities for young people aged from 5 to 25 years of age living in one of the multi-deprived areas of the city.
The MFA helps tackle poor physical health, improves emotional well-being and low levels of confidence. Working with around 120 participants, this is a volunteer-led initiative which provides opportunity for young people to gain experience in the voluntary sector.
First Aid and Nutritional workshops have become a key element of the club’s annual programme. Funding was granted to provide training for additional volunteers to deliver these basic workshops.
