Parents and families
We believe that family is the key to progress, success and development

We work with families not just children. We know that children's journeys are best supported when they have family that understands what they need. We work hard to form strong relationships with parents and families, and we pride ourselves in continued, positive and two-way communication.


We have developed resources for parents and families to develop movement skills at home, and these are part of a well-used 'For Parents section' of the website, which you can view here.

Why and how
Football play can provide joy and connection, for everyone

We believe in the power of play to develop individual skills, bring people and communities together, and to help make society stronger, more inclusive and more democratic. 


Football games - when they are served right - can provide access to states of great joy. The thrill of scoring a goal makes life more worthwhile. Friendship and connection are strengthened during play, and games can support holistic well-being and development.

Our story...

Ministry of Football began in September 2007 with two children in a hall in Muswell Hill, London. Since then we have working with over 3000 families, and delivered hundreds of hours of intense, game-based, indoor football and futsal. Just like the children, we have learnt, we have grown, we have imagined new things. We hope some day you'll join us.
