Our Campaign Story

ends 27 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

We are a group of students from Singapore Polytechnic, raising funds for FootballPlus. Our campaign aims to benefit young people in FootballPlus with the majority from low income families.

One major psychosocial problem resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic is the extended period of social isolation and loneliness it imposes. Physical interactions and leisure activities were severely disrupted, contributing to additional stress, feelings of anxiety and a diminished sense of control.

While social activities are being slowly reintroduced to the young people in the second phase of the reopening, it is crucial to identify and address these psychological impact of the Circuit Breaker on the young people.

We want to raise awareness to encourage more people of like-minded values to support FootballPlus in assisting these youths to build resilience and fulfil their potential amidst this Covid-19 pandemic

About The Charity

FootballPlus Singapore was officially initiated in Oct 2013, after almost two years of planning and pilot running of various school and community programmes. FootballPlus received its charity status in June 2014 and attained IPC status in August 2016.

Since its inception, FootballPlus have grown steadily in its outreach to young people in the community and schools. Our current work sees us working with 170 players every week throughout the year. The academy works with many young people from disadvantaged and low-income families, giving out subsidies or full sponsorship to enable them to be involved in the weekly trainings. In 2019, over 90% of its players received subsidies or sponsorship to attend the trainings

Through its value-based football training programme, FootballPlus aims to impact the Football, Foundation and Future of every player.
