Colts in the Community

The club recognises that it has an important role to play in the local community, and in the wider football community, and will promote and support football based activities, educational activities, community initiatives and good causes.

The club will endeavour to ensure that young children in particular benefit from the positive influences which football can deliver in these matters.

The club will continue to develop the provision of football opportunities for girls and women’s football.

The club will support and work with outside agencies, especially disadvantaged groups, and recognises that it has a role to play in promoting local social inclusion policies. The club continues to develop football coaching opportunities for children with a disability.

School based club activity is an important part of the club’s community programme, and these visits are designed to promote and encourage not only football activity, but also health promotion and social awareness activities.

Footnote

Over the past 12 years St Maurice’s High School in Cumbernauld have developed a strong partnership and friendship with Schools in Malawi, having fund raised to provide, water storage tanks and water pumps to ensure children have access to a clean, safe water source. Basic classroom resources and ICT facilities have been provided to the secondary schools to improve learning. They have also set up a scholarship fund to ensure that no pupil is sent home from school due to failure of fee payments. The local primaries have used their donations to install an electricity supply and improve learning equipment for the young children.

The school are organising a trip to the town to support local children there in 2020.
