FBB puts a young person's passion for football at the heart of their education

Football Beyond Borders (FBB) is an education charity which uses football as a catalyst for creating change in attitude, performance and aspirations of disengaged young people in our school system. FBB’s key objective is to re-engage disadvantaged young people with learning and instil pride, belief and hope for the future.

Our FBB Schools programme exists to tackle the linked problems of educational underachievement and social exclusion for young people from economically disadvantaged communities. We use football themed educational activities to develop the behaviour for learning, literacy skills and motivation of disengaged students.

In the 2018/2019 school year, we are delivering 42 FBB Schools programmes to over 700 young people each week at schools across London and North West of England.
