What is Welcome through Football?
Welcome Through Football is an European programme co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport and UEFA Foundation for Children. This programme is the continuation of the project Welcome through Football that took place in 2019, and aims to assist in the integration and inclusion of recently arrived young refugees, asylum seekers and young people with a migrant background. In the project EFDN will develop and test a European methodology that uses football as a tool to reach refugees and migrants from different ages (675 refugees between the ages of 7 and 25) to get them physically and social active in European communities.
The Welcome Through Football project The project also wants to train the staff members of participating organisations in this new methodology and to develop a Welcome through Football Practitioners Guide with train the trainer courses that are accessible for free and widely used by interested organisations and sport clubs in Europe.
