A Redbridge Council backed scheme aiming to encourage Asian women across the borough to take up football coaching has scooped a prestigious award.

Supported by Vision Redbridge alongside a number of other partners, Muslimah Sports Association and Partners – Asian Women’s Workforce Partnership won at The London Sports Awards on Thursday, March 8.

The project hopes to help tackle low sports participation among female minorities and saw 15 women from across east London given tailored and targeted support from London Sport, Redbridge Council and the Essex FA to help them become certified as Level 1 FA recognised coaches.

Cllr Sheila Bain, Cabinet Member for Civic Pride, said, “It’s great that we have won this award.

“We are committed to helping people from all ethnic backgrounds to be more active and take part in sport and community activities in the borough. The women who took park in this project are an inspiration to their communities.”
