Playing football and being part of a team can be challenging for young people with Autism. This is due to the intense social and communication skills it requires.
Our pathway programme has been established to break down these barriers, improve social communication and interaction and increase participation. Team United is not a football club but we work with clubs and groups to increase their capacity and knowledge to have their own team.
We use the power of football to engage young people, break down social barriers to re-engage them with their peer group. This is done through our project activities.
We run the Autism League and Cup competitions under the umbrella of THE AUTISM FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION. Follow the link below
We also run our own sessions and we deliver a range of projects and services tailored to the needs of young people with Autism aged 10 to 16 years so they can have fun, enjoy football and make friends.
It's not all about playing football either.
Like all football fans, young people with Autism have a bank of knowledge and passion for the sport.
We have social outings and run school holiday provision. We use the power of football to include young people with Autism and make a significant impact on their lives.
