Make Sport Work

We’re part of the Shropshire Sports Collective and we want to Make Sport Work

As part of the UKSPF – People & Skills Funding, Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation and Energize (Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin) have successfully applied to engage with 250 socially inactive individuals across Shropshire.

The Board’s Community Coach, Harry Bolland, works on the Make Sport Work programme alongside Shrewsbury Town Football Club Foundation, Brightstar Boxing, and Embrace as we have joined forces to deliver a series of six week upskilling programmes to engage anyone who wants to learn something new and potentially access the workplace.

The programme takes place in the Shropshire County Council Authority and we have recently deliver in Whitchurch, Ludlow, Oswestry, Bridgnorth & Shrewsbury.
