About the project
Worthing Town FC are an FA Charter Standard Community Club, the only one in Worthing, and based at Palatine Park, Palatine Road, Worthing. BN12 6JN. With 46 teams, and 700 players, we provide football for boys and girls, men and women, from the age of two years upwards.
Fit Community is our charitable arm - Football in the Community. Working in partnership with a range of local community groups and organisations, our projects will aim to address the pockets of deprivation in Worthing tackling health & wellbeing, inequality in access and opportunity faced by those with disabilities, and reduce the stigma associated with mental health, disability, lack of educational opportunity, unemployment, homelessness, and poverty in our local communities.
We will use the power of football, and the extensive, modern facilities at Palatine Park, to deliver projects in the areas of health, education, disability, and social inclusion, all underpinned by our core themes - increasing participation, creating opportunities, tackling inequalities, and improving health.
Alas, with all projects of this nature, we need some initial funding to get going. The playing side is a not-for-profit organisation, and it would be unfair to levy a fee to all members to fund the community side but they will be encouraged to support this scheme if possible ! We believe an initial injection of funds will enable us to set up a range of activities to help those in our local community to lead a better life.
Please help if you can - no matter how small, your donation can help.
