This is an organisation that opens its arms to support individuals who have experienced many forms of abuse. It is our responsibility to support their incredible work and ensure our community is safe for one and all. It is ironic that todays launch follows one of the greatest every victories, our 4-0 victory over Chelsea last night. This project really puts football into perspective.
