Liverpool County FA are proud to have The Brain Charity as our Charity Partner
There are more than 600 different conditions affecting the brain, spine or nervous system. These are called neurological conditions.
A neurological condition is any condition that affects the brain, spinal cord or nervous system.
The Brain Charity is the only charity in the UK to be here for every single one of them.
They support anyone based in the UK who has a neurological condition, and their family, friends, and carers too.
Partnership with Liverpool County FA
We signed a two-year Charity Partnership with The Brain Charity in October 2021. We chose The Brain Charity as we want to ensure that more people from the grassroots football community are aware of neurological conditions and the impact they have on family, friends and carers.
During this period, the partnership will:
- Raise awareness of the more than 600 different neurological conditions in existence and the support The Brain Charity offers;
- Raise money to fund The Brain Charity’s front-line services; providing practical help, emotional support and social activities to people with all forms of neurological condition and their family, carers and friends;
- Show how clubs and leagues can be more dementia-friendly by ensuring grounds and facilities are accessible, understanding the difficulties people with dementia encounter to help them enjoy watching football for longer and raising awareness of the signs and symptoms, as well as risks associated with heading;
- Enable local grassroots football clubs and Liverpool County FA to refer employees, players, coaches, officials and volunteers with neurological conditions to The Brain Charity’s support services so they can access the help that they need;
- Enable people with neurological conditions across Merseyside the opportunity to engage with football through Liverpool County FA;
- Offer our employees an opportunity to volunteer in many areas of The Brain Charity’s work, particularly as phone befrienders supporting clients affected by loneliness and social isolation, and give people with neurological conditions an opportunity to gain valuable work experience within the world of sport;
