Team United use the power of football as a learning platform to break down social barriers that young people with Neurodivergent conditions face when participating in football and team environments.
We work with young people to help them achieve all they want to in a supportive and inspiring environment. Developing them as individuals and players.
“Neurodiversity” is a word used to explain the unique ways in which people's brains work, for example diagnosis of Autism or ADHD and many other conditions.
We deliver programmes and initiatives that are designed to help neurodivergent children and young people aged 10 to 24 years to connect, flourish, discover and shine. We also provide mainstream services to any child or young person who wants to connect using some of our resources and projects. This is usually done within a school setting.
We promote an environment where young people with Autism and other Neurodivergent conditions can play football and be part of a team, whilst adapting to the intense social and communicative demands they are likely to experience.
