Our collaboration with FC Marylebone
Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB) is delighted to announce we will be collaborating with FC Marylebone (FCM), an organisation which shares our values in protecting vulnerable children and helping them to fulfil their potential, no matter where they are from. The partnership aims to increase awareness and funding of CFAB, while allowing FCM to invest in nutrition, sports psychology and coaching developments for their players.
Through their FCM for Everyone programme, FCM has given young people from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to build a sense of belonging, unity and ownership, all values that CFAB shares. In collaboration with our Refugee Family Reunification Project, we will be encouraging young refugees to take part in this programme to ensure they can develop important life skills and settle into their new community with the support they deserve. CFAB has worked for over 65 years to ensure vulnerable children are provided with a happy and safe environment where they can thrive, and we look forward to working with FC Marylebone to make that a reality for even more young people.
