Joint Initiative With the Football Association

Our newest project is an exciting 3 year initiative with the GFA which will hopefully make a major difference to the development of healthy lifestyles for young girls on Guernsey.

We will be helping to fund a Development Officer, local girl Joelle Pengelley, who will form part of a team of Development Officers who will work with Primary schools to achieve the following outcomes:

  • To offer focused physical activity sessions for all young girls within the Island’s Primary schools
  • To upskill teachers by using the resources of The Football Association to ensure a legacy is left so that teachers are confident in delivering
  • To link schools with the local Clubs to develop the Girls’ game rather than just girls who play football
  • To link in with other agencies on the island who are involved in empowering girls and women
