Goals Beyond Grass was founded in 2016 following a successful start in Powerchair Football by the CEO Brian Dix. He recognised that the work being done to engage the community and give disabled people more chances and opportunity to engage in fun, social sports was not enough. He wanted to use Powerchair Football as the vehicle and take the sport out to the community giving everyone the chance to feel included.
Now the charity operates on a daily basis by the philosophy and values
– Sport for all (no one will ever be turned away from taking part in our activities)
– Social and Physical (we will encourage a coming together of like minded individuals)
– Community (we will involve the whole community, able bodied and disabled)
