Britain's Beacon of Hope

With almost a year to date since the govt-backed report on race and ethnic disparities suggested that the world should look to Britain as a beacon of hope on race. The Child Q case brought issues of institutional racism to the forefront.

Our Mission

We work with young people who are passionate about football, but disengaged at school, in order to support them to finish school with the skills and grades to successfully transition to adulthood.

Therapeutic Approach


Our approach is built around long-term trusting relationships between young people and culturally competent practitioners with lived experience. Our counsellors and therapists marry a deep, personal understanding of the communities our young people live in with the highest level of therapeutic training and qualifications.  Find out more here.

Our Programme


Our programme is delivered to groups of up to 16 students, beginning in Year 8, and combines weekly two-hour sessions divided between one hour in the classroom and one hour on the football pitch alongside therapeutic interventions and half-termly reward visits.

Our ImpacT



FBB impacts the lives of young people at risk of exclusion. 78% of our programme graduates achieved a level 4 or above in their English and maths GCSEs. This compares to 56% of young people eligible for pupil premium nationally.
