Welcome to Football Healthy 4 Life

We are a FA Charter Standard Football club that enables adults with learning disabilities to access football in Colchester, Tendring and Witham/Braintree. We run both men’s and women’s teams.

The aims of the football project are:

  • To help vulnerable people realise their potential, develop personal skills, and improve on compliance, assertiveness and confidence
  • To promote healthy lifestyle and physical activity through football & social inclusion
  • To address inequalities in health and provide social inclusion by supporting vulnerable adults to participate/ access football
  • To provide training on a weekly basis with qualified coaches from local football clubs
  • To provide the opportunity to participate in affiliated Leagues and tournaments
  • To work closely with the Essex FA and Suffolk FA 
  • To link with primary health services
  • To provide opportunities for players to attend training and football workshops
