Leicester City Woodgate Football Partnership & Club

Leicester City Woodgate Inclusive Football Partnership was set up in May 2007 and currently provides regular football opportunities for females, males, youngsters and adults with a special need or learning, physical or sensory impairments or disabilities.

The Club provides a great opportunity for the teams to train every week and take part on a regular basis in the Leicestershire & Rutland Inclusive Football League, which takes around the City and County. The ethos of the League is Respect and Fair Play.

Football is a great team sport and can offer players a great way of having fun, learning new skills and enhancing health and well being, social and life skills and also help to raise the self esteem of those players involved.
