In November 2006 Aldershot Town FC's Football in the Community scheme in conjunction with its partners sucessfully received funding from the Football Foundation to develop its programme for children and adults with special needs.

The funding and support from the partners allows for a comprehensive range of activities for a variety of special needs groups and individuals and includes:- weekly football and multi-sport sessions, work with individual schools and day centres plus the development of many extra-curricular activities.

This programme also allows new players the opportunity to experience football as a fun activity and not as a sport exclusive for non-disabled people, while helping raise self-esteem and confidence levels.

In addition, the programme aims to raise the profile and awareness of disability football therefore increasing the levels of participation and subsequently unite many community groups and individuals.
