Football in particular.

The foundation of our values,

customs, traditions and history

asserting our identity


We will provide French lessons, peer support and heritage based activities in order to build a sense of confident belonging and connection to the local area. We will carry out a range of services in order to help people grow up with pride in the people and cultures that have made them, and find acceptance and understanding from the communities of which they are a part.
