  • Piloting opportunities for girls and women from diverse backgrounds to play, lead, coach, volunteer, officiate or be role models in their communities
  • Supporting an increase in Women's Adult Recreational Football, e.g. Just Play - Vets, Novice Women, Mums, Soccercise, Women's Walking Football
  • Increasing opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to play
  • Social responsibility football projects where females have traditionally not been targeted (e.g. refugees & asylum seekers, offenders, faith groups)
