Empower Women & Girls

What is Empower Women & Girls?

Empower Women & Girls is supported by the Premier League and Professional Footballer’s Association. Administered through the Premier League Charitable Fund, the funding helps football clubs to tackle inequality and respond to local challenges, supporting people and their communities to be more inclusive.

The programme aims to empower women and girls to be active, feel stronger and more confident in their ability to take part in physical activity and sport and eliminate gender stereotypes.

Who is it For?
