Goal Difference

Delivery Partner Required For Goal Difference Programme

North Riding FA is seeking a delivery partner to secure a cohort of schools to participate in the rollout of our exciting new schools programme, Goal Difference.

Football has the unique ability to capture the hearts and imagination of school children, enhance everyday school life, improve physical and mental wellbeing and play a key role in supporting whole school improvement.

Due to the increasing concerns about mental health in young people, Goal Difference has been designed following consultation with Primary School staff to introduce a number of ‘attitudes’ (thoughts, feelings and behaviours) that we believe contribute to the development of positive mental wellbeing in a child’s formative years.

Goal Difference is North Riding FA’s inaugural school-based programme which seeks to provide child focussed interventions that complement existing plans of teaching staff.

A delivery partner is required to secure a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 12 schools to sign up to participate in the Goal Difference programme by 20/12/2019 to allow delivery of the work to commence in schools from 13/1/2020.


Closing Date for tenders: Friday 14 September

Maximum Budget: £3500
