As Executive Director of the Pickering Football Club since October 2016, I have the chance to see on a daily basis the important role and inherent challenges that grassroots, community clubs have to deliver quality, affordable programs. When it comes to inclusive and accessible programs these are often met with more hurdles because club leaders are fearful of cost, liability or the added duty of care. When done properly the impact we have can be striking and no better example of this can be found than the All Abilities program at Pickering FC. Established in 2008 and developed through key strategic funding and academic partners by a former Board Member the program continues to inspire and inform.
