Details of the Charity:Share this
The Jason Roberts Foundation (JRF) was established in 2007 by the former professional footballer, media personality and social activist Jason Roberts as a means to put something back into the community he came from, and to underpin his belief in equal opportunities, rights and representation for individuals regardless of background or circumstance.
Initially focusing on the Stonebridge Estate in the London Borough of Brent, where Jason grew up, and in Grenada, where is his family originate from and for whom he played as an international footballer, the Foundation originally focused on football based social inclusion projects – projects that offered participation and playing opportunities to young people who otherwise had little chance of accessing coaching or opportunities to progress as players.
