Advice for Life are delighted to announce that we are proud sponsors of Dumfries & Galloway Youth Football, through our partnership with Community Sponsorship Partnership Scotland Ltd (CSP Scotland).
CSP Scotland is responsible for producing Fixture List Planners for no less than 25 Youth and Soccer Development Leagues across the whole of Scotland.
CSP help open the door for businesses, big and small to get involved in supporting the local league in their community.
These initiatives take the shape of two different publications tackling everyday logistical and administrative issues that families, coaches and youth football leagues have faced for many years -
Firstly the 'Fixture List Planner' this idea has now been rolled out across over 25 youth leagues in Scotland and continuously generates thousands of pounds for youth football across Scotland every year whilst raising the profile of each individual league in their community.
The 'Pitch Finder Handbook' followed which is being used by tens of thousands of families week to week to find out how to get to their next game.
Next the CSP Pitch Locator website was developed to incorporate fixtures and pitch finders.
The end of 2015 saw the launch of smartphone app... the 'CSP Pitch Finder' - which is now available for Android and iOS phones and tablets.
These publications, websites and apps are not only aimed at tackling problems within youth football leagues, they have become a way of raising the profile of youth football in the community.
CSP Scotland have already generated more than £50,000 of new money for youth football in Scotland. By strengthening links with youth football leagues up and down the country they hope to build on that figure and allow these associations and clubs to continue to provide football to their community.
From all of us at Advice for Life, we wish CPS every success, and are delighted to offer our support.
