Sport is something that brings people together and creates opportunities for people to gain and build vital life skills; teamwork, communication, determination and much more. It also has a positive influence on physical and mental health and wellbeing. 

ASHA now hosts 4 football teams across a wide age range, bringing together asylum seekers and refugees from a breadth of countries. For more information about our football teams, or if you would like to join one, please get in touch
