WWFC Social Inclusion programme began in July 2006. It was then named the Diversity Project and WWFC were one of the first professional clubs to employ their very own diversity officer.
Named the Diversity Project and WWFC were one of the first professional clubs to employ their very own diversity officer.
The role of the diversity officer is to use football as a vehicle to engage, socialise, participate, create cohesion, and keep safe and healthy people from all backgrounds and cultures in the High Wycombe and surrounding areas.
The project over the years has developed and expanded immensely and we as a team are always looking to initiate new and exciting projects. We have built many local, regional and national partnerships with various organisations, which help in delivering, funding, supporting, helping, advising, implementing and many more aspects of events and sessions that we operate.
Over the years the league has had much recognition for the work it has done and both the BBC and FA came to film the league while it was in progress.
The project has been recognised nationally and locally for the work it has achieved. Its Ramadan project was runner-up in The Football League’s end-of-year awards as Community Initiative of the Year and also it has helped the club be named Family Club of the Year in 2009.
The programme is there for all, no matter what age, ability, gender, colour, religion, culture or background the individual or group is from. Football is our main vehicle but we deliver workshop and sessions in multisport, including tag rugby, cricket, mini-golf, tennis, basketball, hockey and athletics.
