Stockport County Community Foundation and Equity Foundation have been working in partnership to provide a free soccer school in the summer holidays at Dial Park Primary School in Offerton. The main emphasis of the course at Dial Park was to help the group understand the importance of respect in the local community. Throughout the week the group had to take part in different activities, such as spotting the examples of respect and disrespect, talking in groups about respect and disrespect and to ask the group to act out a role play on real life situations. The final two activities were everyone designing a poster promoting the message of respect and to design a respect-themed poem.

We were very impressed with the attitude of all participants taking part in the sessions; the input and the ideas coming from the group was excellent. During the second part of the day, it became clear how much of a positive effect the respect programme had, when they took part in some coaching sessions and football matches. The behaviour and attitude of the children was impressive - when it came down to the matches the group worked well among one another and played with smiles on their faces throughout. What was really encouraging was seeing the sportsmanship among the group.

Antonia Dale, mother of one of the participants, said: “my child loves to play football all the time, we know he is safe and looked after by the coach and the location is great, right the corner from our house”

Laura, another mother, said: “The children always came out of the sessions with a smile, I also think the respect learning has been fantastic as my child will come home and tell me what he has learnt and how he is going to use this away from football”

Matthew Bailey, Assistant Community Foundation Manager: “We are really proud to be working in partnership with the Equity Foundation. This course has given so many young people the opportunity to learn the importance of respect and how if you disrespect someone what consequences may occur. The football element of the respect project has had a positive impact to the group because this has help the group work in teams and shown good sportsmanship. What topped the week off was to for the group to work with two SCFC players in George West and Sam Minihan.
