Members of the Creative Football team are celebrating after landing another win at the Northwest Football Awards.

Blackburn's Creative Football won the ‘Promoting inclusion’ (non-league) honour at the event after also clinching the award in 2021.

Finalists in 2023 included: Liverpool Homeless Football Club; The Fed’s My Voice Project and The Mid Lancs Colts Junior Football League. The ceremony was held at Old Trafford and hosted by ex-footballer Dion Dublin and presenter Eilidh Barbour.

The Creative Football project is a non-contact all-inclusive session which is open to those who are living with Parkinson’s, recovering from the effect of a stroke or any form of neurological disorders.

The sessions also cater for anyone who is experiencing mobility issues or other long-term health conditions.

The Northwest Football Awards were launched 16 years ago to celebrate the region’s brightest and best in the game, paying tribute to those who have achieved footballing excellence both on and off the field.

Lancashire Telegraph:

Paul Davies from Creative Football said: “We say it time and time again, we have not won this as a business

“Every single participant, service user, volunteer and supporter this is your award.

“The projects are not ours, they are the communities. You all make them the unique and special sessions what they are.

“A big thank you to everyone, especially Together an Active Future and Sport England for their backing and support so far on this incredible journey.”

 “However, we still continue to look and need supporters and without supporters and sponsors these wellbeing and life saving sessions can't continue.”
