In your announcement of a new programme to improve access to sport and activity for women refugees and asylum seekers you mentioned the partnership with Queens Park Rangers Community Trust. Have you looked at expanding your partnership to other football clubs and community groups across London?

We chose to partner with Queens Park Rangers Community Trust on this project initially as they were part of the Women’s EURO Legacy group, and this programme is part of that legacy. We have spoken to other partners in London who have run programmes directed at different target groups such as resettled refugee children to use any lessons they have learned and hope that this project will be able to lay a blueprint for activity across London in the future. We would welcome any community groups or organisations that would like to get in touch with us to discuss the programme and support that they could give.
