We are delighted to announce that we are teaming up with our Ambassador Harry Redknapp to launch a campaign to make football more autism friendly. The Autism Friendly Football campaign will support football clubs to make small changes that will make a big difference to anyone affected by autism.
Harry Redknapp, former Premier League Football Manager, said; “I feel strongly that football should be open to be everyone. It is so important that we remove any barriers that might stop someone from coming along to a match and cheering on their team. That’s why I’m backing this campaign and would urge all clubs to get behind it!”
The campaign will kick off at Vitality Stadium at the end of October when Autism Wessex will be working with AFC Bournemouth to deliver autism awareness training to stewards and front of house staff.
We would love to work with football clubs of all sizes across the region so whether you are a fan, player or staff member, please click on the button below to find out more and register your interest:
