NO BARRIERS AT HOME

Welcome to No Barriers at Home, a fun interactive project that brings people together, even when we can’t be together!

With the current COVID-19 restrictions in place, the No Barriers project has been amended to suit your current environment.

The project celebrates football ‘Champions’ from each of the 12 host cities of the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament who have overcome barriers to achieve success on the football pitch. Their stories inspire students to become active citizens, using sport to promote social action. The champions – past and present – include players who have challenged racism, a player who led his team to win the championship cup, twice, despite having lost an arm in a car crash, and a Holocaust survivor who went on to be a world-renowned coach.

This new project brings the excitement and power of football directly to pupils in their homes in the Republic of Ireland, focusing on Dublin and London as host cities of the tournament. The project is supported by the Football Association of Ireland and the Greater London Authority.

The first ‘Champion’ that we will feature on the series is England International, Tyrone Mings.
