We're using footballing to bring teachers together and build communities. There’s no two-ways about it, teaching is a stressful job and it’s important that teachers look after their mental health. With its combination of camaraderie and exercise football is a win-win for Wellbeing.
#EduFootyAid matches also raise money for Mind, the country's leading mental health charity. Mind's goal is to ensure that every person experiencing a mental health problem receives the support and respect they deserve, and we think that's worth cheering on.
Registering for #EduFootyAid is free and only takes 2-minutes. Based on your school's location you'll be put into one of our nine regional teams.
You'll get email updates about upcoming fixtures, and you can opt to play in as many or as few as you like. Fixtures are adhoc but we're aiming to have three matches a year for each team.
Squads are large (20+) because we appreciate people won’t always be able to commit to every game. Our teams are mixed gender, age (18+), and ability, and we welcome anybody who works in a school or educational facility.
Each game has a shared £500 fundraising target that we promote via our JustGiving page.
