Welcome through Football

Thousands of refugees and asylum seekers are re-located to Liverpool each year which can present many complex challenges as they attempt to adapt to living in a new and unfamiliar area, learn a new language and attempt to integrate into mainstream society. Everton in the Communities ‘Welcome through Football’ project uses football as an engagement tool to help break down cultural barriers; creating a safe and welcoming environment for refugees and asylum seekers to play football together.
