Thistle Works

by Partick Thistle Charitable Trust Claimed

This programme activity is accessible to all with any kind of disability, providing the opportunity for individuals with different impairments to play football together, regardless of the limitations in play by breaking down the barriers they may face while trying to get involved in sport.

We strongly believe this programme aids in:

Building confidence.
Improving employability.
Develop transferable skills.
Increases fitness levels.
Creates friendships.
Improves over all well-being.

Thistle Works also helps to improve their discipline, time- keeping, attendance, uniform skills and verbal/non-verbal communication, which are all transferable skills that they can take into their job-seeking or further education. This has also given them a network of friends.

Sessions are run on a weekly basis – Every Wednesday @ Firhill Complex – 5pm – 7pm.

The Trust also have two teams who are registered within the SFA PAN Disability league, which is a series of bi-monthly league competitions for young players with a range of disabilities.
