Links Park C.T will take part in the #MorethanFootball Action Week

The #MorethanFootball Action Week Team is proud to announce that Links Park Community Trust is going to participate in the #MorethanFootball Action Week.

Who are Links Park Community Trust?

Links Park Community Trust (LPCT), a registered charity, aims to utilise the power and widespread of sport, but in particular football, to inspire change, through an extensive range of sporting, healthy and educational programmes.

LPCT work with a range of partners in the identification of local need, such as health inequalities, and develop and deliver programmes that are designed to address such, with examples being our ‘Football Memories’ reminiscence project for those living with dementia, our ‘Walk & Talk’ initiative for socially isolated older adults and our ‘Walking Football’ programme for those with mental health disorders.

The award-winning educational programmes aims to improve attainment and achievement in the areas of health, numeracy, literacy and science by using football as the context and challenging participants to take on key roles at the stadium, such as the ‘new signing’ or the ‘reporter’ in a mock press conference amongst others.
