Omagh Futsal Association

Registered

Charity no. 108859 Date registered. 13/04/2022

Public benefits

Omagh Futsal Club primarily uses the sport of futsal to promote fitness, advance education and promote social development within the Fermanagh Omagh district council. Through the providing opportunities for inhabitants to take part in healthy recreation, we will improve levels of general health and fitness for children and young people. This

includes both physical health in terms of aerobic capacity, and also mental and emotional wellbeing through the participation in team fames, social interaction and communication with other users. Through taking part in physical activity we are providing a public benefit by increasing the skills of participants, these skills include fundamental movements such as catching, hand eye co-ordination, balance, running and jumping. Our volunteers engender an ethos of respect and teamwork; skills which contribute to developing the social development of individuals who take part. These basic skills will be transferrable and can be applied into other aspects of children’s lives, in a sporting, social or academic setting. We are providing public benefit through using sport as an alternative to other, potentially negative or criminal pursuits, particularly for older children 13-17 year olds. This also includes the provision of training and education through workshops, volunteer education and establishing pathways for participants to attend programmes within partner organisations which may result in employment prospects. We provide a public benefit through promoting co-operation and joint activities between sports, community and voluntary, statutory organisations and service providers to ensure they can access the appropriate services. Sport infers health, educational, social and aspirational benefits for participants. There is no private benefit or harm. Benefits identified are demonstrated through the evaluation of our activities, programmes and services through players, club and AGM meetings and with other stakeholders. This includes gathering feedback via a range of means such as 1-2-1 interviews, group discussions or focus groups, comment cards, surveys and questionnaires around the benefits of activity provided. We also monitor participant numbers within sessions, growth in membership, retention into other programmes etc. to further reference the value and impact of our provision and to develop beneficial future services.
