We run Football and Education projects that improve lives in areas of deprivation across Brighton & Hove and Sussex. Our projects fuse football with design, nutrition, upcycling, and social, get-togethers.
We work with local people aged 4 - 84, refugees, and children with SEND.
All of our projects are free for participants and we also help source and supply free boots, kits and equipment for those who can't afford them.
Our mission is simple: we want to improve lives through football and education. We share an office with Crew Club in Whitehawk and also run satellite clubs in places such as Mouslecoomb Primary School and other schools and colleges across the city.
What does the opportunity involve doing?
We want someone to work alongside the MD to help develop our projects and measure and evaluate their impact. This is a hybrid role of volunteer only (to start with) and part project funded (where bids allow for this to happen). Eventually, if things develop, we'd like to turn it into a more permanent role possibly. At the moment, though, funds don't allow for that.
You don't have to be a football coach, or even have thought about being one, we want someone whose values align and who wants to make a difference in people's lives.
The role involves working with the MD to plan new projects, develop existing ones, deal with venues and our bid writer, be on-site to see projects in action and collate data so we can measure and evaluate our impact better.
We are also open to new ideas that could benefit the people our projects are for; the disenfranchised, marginalised, the lost and the lonely, and people who don't get the same opportunities in life simply because they were born and live in the 'wrong' postcode.

Visiting various sessions to see how they run and liaising with coaches and other volunteers
