‘It gives them a sense of equality, a sense of purpose.’

Junior Academy of Birmingham Sport, or JABS B8 FC, helps to promote and foster enthusiasm for football within the local community and improve self-esteem, leadership and the health of young people.

What is JABS B8 FC?

JABS B8 FC is a non-profitable organisation, run by a group of volunteers who are DBS certified and FA qualified. The club provides a football programme for children aged 5+ and aims to improve the lives of young people both on and off the pitch.

The club not only looks to ensure children in the community are leading a healthy lifestyle, but also provides a safe place for children to make new friends and build their self confidence and social skills.

The club’s boys team has been running successfully for the last three years but JABS B8 FC has been inundated with requests from the local community to introduce sessions for young girls. The club felt that they had a responsibility to cater for everyone in the community and ensure there were equal opportunities for girls both in football and their later lives.

If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?

The funding from LoveBrum will ensure the girls football team gets off the ground and is sustainable. It would allow JABS B8 FC to cover the cost of pitch hire and new training equipment. Most importantly, however, the club would be able to purchase new JABS B8 FC kits for the girls team and give them a real sense of inclusion in the club.
