Wingate & Finchley are delighted to announce that we have partnered with the Football Supporters' Federation through 'Fans for Diversity' and Swaggarlicious Ltd, of which company director, Manisha Tailor was recently awarded an MBE - to launch the Wingate & Finchley FC Disabled Fans Forum.
The Forum is an initiative that allows football fans from within the local area, who have a disability, in particular mental health, to come together and enjoy the beautiful game in a safe place where they can simply be themselves and support their local football club. It is designed to promote an active, healthy and independent lifestyle for adults suffering from mental illness.
Tailor said "Engaging with those who have mental health is something personal and very important to me. I have seen the impact football can have on giving a sense of belonging to those with mental health. With the help of Fans for Diversity I think the Wingate & Finchley Disabled Fans Forum will change the lives of many and help those with mental health feel included within our society and most importantly, build a love for their local football club".
