Crawley Town supporting the community following Coronavirus

Crawley Town Community Foundation has responded to the Covid-19 outbreak to support the community as best it can following Government and Public Health England have begun to impose restrictions.

Although the Foundation offices are closed from Monday 23rd March until further notice for staff to work from home, the following initiatives have been adapted and created to so we can keep supporting people through these difficult times.

Our School Sports Programme is still operating, and we have qualified, experienced coaches who have expressed an interest to continue to go into schools to help support teaching staff with children who will continue to attend as their parent/s are key workers.

All of our staff are DBS checked and are experienced in leading PE lessons and assisting the delivery of curriculum based lessons such as Literacy and Numeracy.

This is constantly being reviewed and is subject to change based on the latest Government guidance.

If you are interested, please email kayleighbowers@crawleytownfc.com

The BTEC course delivered from the People’s Pension Stadium will now be delivered by our tutors to students who will work from home, so despite the recent cancellation of all schools and exams, we will continue to provide education to students in the safest possible way we can.

Help has been provided by Crawley Town FC 1st team who recently recorded messages of support for those most isolated and vulnerable in our communities. The staff is available to help anyone in need of support by emailing darrenford@crawleytownfc.com

Programme participants of Move the Goalposts and Extra Time Hubs received phone calls from staff following session cancellation, and regular calls will be made until further notice to continue to give those most vulnerable the best support we can give them. Support packs will also be provided to our older members and particiapnts through support packs, which will provide people with tips for positive mental health and Wellbeing, Seated Exercise routines, an exercise resistance band and general guidelines on staying fit and well.
