The FAI recognises that some people or communities start from a disadvantaged position (physical or intellectual disability, mental health etc) and may need proactive assistance from the Association to gain access to all opportunities that exist in football. Since 2002 the FAI has been providing opportunities for players of all abilities to access football at a level that suits them. Kilkenny Recreation & Sports Partnership coordinate the FFA programme at local level.
Evergreen FC host FFA for children each Saturday on the astro turf. All abilities welcome – just come along and join in. For additional information call Therese 087 9040208 or Phil 086 2505816 or visit evergreenfc.ie.
The players involved come from services for adults with intellectual and mental health difficulties, but not exclusively. All players train weekly with their service or group. For further information, call Seamus on 087 3567884 or email email@example.com.
