Who we Are
We are a registered charitable trust working in partnership with Weston super Mare AFC to create Seagulls In The Community.
We provide and deliver a range of sports projects including football & multi sports within the local community, encouraging health and well being, particularly to those who are disadvantaged and do not have access to these activities within North Somerset. We also deliver education and qualifications, as well as disability and social inclusion sessions.
We help to overcome individual challenges and build confidence. We engage people and help them to reach their potential.
As Weston-super-Mare AFC are part of the National League set up, the Seagulls In The Community are entitled to receive a grant to run a project. With this seasons grant we are going to continue our work with the local schools. This project is based around improving physical activity and social skills.
The grant is being used to subsidise the cost of sessions, which will enable every school the opportunity to access high quality professional coaching, at an affordable price. As part of the project all schools will be able to access the free golden ticket initiative for fixtures at Weston-super-Mare AFC.
One of the main benefits of having a partnership with the Football Club, is that we have linked some of the Players from the Men’s and Women’s First teams into our Community Coaching.
There are plenty of opportunities for more schools to get involved with our project. As part of the package we can offer sessions such as breakfast clubs, lunch clubs and after school clubs. We also cater for curriculum sessions that can be either physical education or our very own healthy living workbook.
If you would like any more information or have any suggestions for us then we will be happy to hear from you.
To provide the community with a service of quality and excellence through football and sport.
To engage, motivate and inspire, allowing individuals to achieve and be the very best they can be.
Striving to be the best. To educate, value and enhance lives in our community.
We understand that not all children are motivated by sport; however we do believe that every child has within them the capabilities to reach their own sporting potential, given that the right opportunities are presented to them.
