The Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) Trust is working with 5 community trusts across Scotland, include the Falkirk Foundation locally, to run their next Off the Bench programme, which is now open for referrals.
Funded by the Scottish Government’s CashBack fund, Off the Bench is a 12-week, one-day-per-week programme, for young people looking to take their next positive step. Referrals can be made by a range of groups and organisations, including public and third sector agencies. Self-referral is not possible.
The programme is for young people who are:
- aged 16 – 24 years old
- not in education, employment, or training
- yet to identify their next positive step
- interested in football and making a difference in their local community
To make a referral, or for further information, please contact Ruth Kelso Mason, by phone: 07946271828, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
