Workshops at LFC

October 21st, 2011

Liverpool Football Club hosted a special event, to support those affected by disabilities within the local community.

Youngsters from St Vincent’s School attended a series of workshops that involved sessions with Guide Dogs for the Blind, as well as a focus on British Sign Language with the National Deaf Children’s Society.

Liverpool Football Club’s Social Inclusion Officer, Rishi Jain, who is heavily involved with the club’s work during the Kick It Out Weeks of Action, said:

“The work that the club completes alongside Kick It Out during this time and all year round is a significant part of challenging discriminatory issues both on and off the pitch.

“It allows Liverpool FC to further demonstrate its stance of anti-tolerance of discrimination in any form, regardless of an individuals age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or religion.”

Liverpool will continue their support of the campaign during Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match with Norwich City when both sets of players will wear ‘One game one community’ t-shirts in the warm-up.
