Scottish Women’s Football (SWF) are delighted to confirm that the Scottish Football Partnership (SFP) Trust have agreed to provide further funding to 100 SWF candidates attending First Aid training courses delivered by the Hampden Sports Clinic. Previously, the SFP Trust provided 100 part-funded places with nearly all of these places having now been used.
This agreement means that two-thirds of the course costs are covered by the SFP Trust funding, with the remaining one-third covered by the club.
SWF Executive Officer, Fiona McIntyre, said: “We are delighted to have received this extended funding from the SFP Trust. The courses have been incredibly popular with significant uptake from club officials, which is hugely positive for the game. The safety and health of players, coaches, and spectators is of vital importance to SWF and the SPF Trust. This funding will mean that an additional 200 SWF members are First Aid qualified and can directly influence the safety and health of those involved in the game.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the SFP Trust again for their support and the positive impact they are having in the girls’ and women’s game.”
