The GFA has provided funding to the Robins Foundation

GFA funding ensures free women and girls' football can continue

Funding shows the GFA’s dedication to growing the game across all areas.

The Gloucestershire FA is pleased to announce that it has provided funding to the Bristol City Robins Foundation to continue running its free football sessions for women and girls.

The funding will ensure the Robins Foundation’s free female fitness and football sessions across Bristol, which provide women and girls over the age of six the opportunity to get involved in football and stay active, the ability to continue.

The sessions also showcase the GFA’s dedication to growing the game across all areas, linked with our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan which is overseen by the Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG). The plan commits to supporting the development of the women and girls’ game across Gloucestershire in line with The FA’s Inspiring Positive Change strategy.

Robins Foundation Women and Girls Lead Grace Phillips said: “A massive thank you to the GFA for the funding. It’s great that we can continue to run sessions across Bristol, offering women and girls access to free football, which will help them stay physically active and mentally too.”

GFA Women and Girls Development Officer Skye Smith said: ‘We’re thrilled to help the Robins Foundation continue to deliver free football to women and girls across Bristol. It is important that as the number of women and girls playing football continues to grow, there are organisations and facilities to accommodate them. The funding to the Foundation showcases our commitment to making this happen.”
