Club Initiatives 19/20

See what we are doing in our community.

Mental Health

We were proud to commence our new club-wide mental health initiative, ‘You’re Not In This Alone’, at the beginning of the 2019/20 season, launched by Vice-Chairman, Barry Sutton.

The campaign aims to support both members of the club, including players, officials and coaches, in addition to supporters & members of the public who may benefit from supporting their local football club. If anyone is suffering from a mental health issue in the community, they can contact Barry & we will organise free entry to our home matches.

In 2018, we were also successful in fundraising over £1,000 for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) and over £200 for our local MIND store in Lancing, through fundraising at games, and our club Quiz Night.

If you wish to raise a welfare concern or reach out to the club about your mental health, please drop us an email using the address below. This will be treated confidentially and only be seen by the most senior committee member(s).

Royal British Legion

We are proud to have our local branch of the Royal British Legion as a programme sponsor for the 2019/20 season, for the second consecutive year.

In honour of Remembrance Sunday in November, our first team players will be wearing poppies on their kits on the Saturday fixture away at Lingfield, to raise awareness & money for the Royal British Legion.

Fairtrade Foundation

Through our ethical friends at Bala Sport, our Ladies team use Fairtrade certified footballs for all training session & competitive matches at Culver Road. This helps to ensure that the workers who make our footballs, primarily in Sialkot, Pakistan, and in Bangladesh, and guaranteed a fair wage, safe working conditions, investment in community projects through the Fairtrade Premium, whilst reducing the need for child labour.

Co-op

From October 2019 – October 2020 you are able to select us as your local community cause via your Co-op membership card. We receive 1% back from all purchases of the members who select us as their chosen charity in Lancing.

Environment Pledge

We are proud to be based at the Sussex County FA headquarters in Lancing. The facility contains a 3G pitch, which requires less maintenance than a traditional grass pitch, in addition to the use solar panels as a source of renewable energy, light sensors to ensure that lights are only switched on when the facility is in use, and LED lighting to reduce energy consumption.

As a club, we also promote recycling within our office, as well as offering a battery recycling box for all club officials & supporters.

All of the paper we use in our office is FSC certified, and our envelopes are chlorine-free.

Disability Pledge

For the 2019/20 season, we launched our very own Disability team. They play at least once a month, and train regularly. Their kit is proudly sponsored by Deliveroo, and the squad is a sure sign of our commitment to inclusivity and outreach within our local community.

Our team is primarily formed of players who have mental health issues & learning difficulties.

Sponsors & Our Local Businesses

We are committed to supporting our local businesses, and hold an annual sponsor’s evening at Culver Road, as well as offering discounted or free matchball sponsorships to some of our local shops along their high street near Culver Road.
