After the success of the award-winning health and wellbeing programme - Fit Rovers, Club Doncaster Foundation are delighted to announce the introduction of the Football Welcomes project .
The Football Welcomes Community Project is a three-year initiative to harness the power of the beautiful game to create more welcoming communities for refugees across the UK.
The Foundation will continue to work closely with Doncaster Conversation Club United (DCC United) to help members of the community who have had to flee conflict and persecution develop a sense of belonging and purpose as they settle into their new life in the UK.
Over the past couple of years, the Foundation’s health and wellbeing team have given asylum seekers the opportunity to take part in sport throughout Doncaster. This includes: invitations to matchdays, football sessions at Club Doncaster Academy on a Friday afternoon, and opportunities to play on the Keepmoat Stadium turf alongside Rovers supporters and Fit Rovers members.
