Bray Wanderers Launches Social Responsibility Charter

Bray Wanderers FC, or the Seagulls as they are affectionately known, is this week launching a project to develop a new Social Responsibility Charter.
    BRAY, IRELAND, October 10, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The club will invite all of its stakeholders to engage in a process that includes a survey, discussions, conversations and input from the community that will lead to the development of a Charter that defines what the club stands for and how it reflects a modern, community-based approach to football.

The project is championed by club chairman, Denis O'Connor. 'According to UEFA, football is an integral part of global society and, as arguably the world's most popular sport, it has an invaluable role to play in driving social development and bringing its influence to bear,' he says.

'We are immensely proud of the club and its traditions. We have put together a great management team and selected an array of talented young players. This is already paying off in our fantastic results, including last Saturday's win over Sligo Rovers. Now we want to make sure that everyone in the community can get involved and more importantly, get behind this talented club,' says O'Connor.

The club has appointed Dermot O'Brien as the project leader to develop the Charter. O'Brien is well-known Youth and Community leader having worked professionally in Bray for 20 years in this area. He is an international trainer attached to the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. He teaches in Liberties College and is a volunteer with Be Well Bray amongst other interests.

'The football club is not separate to the community, it is part of the community and has a role to play within the community,' says O'Brien.

'We are excited about the prospect of building connections and having the scope to make positive contributions to the wide variety of wonderful projects and initiatives that are making a difference in Bray, Wicklow and South Dublin,' he says.

Bray Wanderers FC is on a journey. O'Brien is looking to find out more about the dreams and ambitions both on the pitch and off for the club. He is tasked with taking those ambitions and achieving common goals through collaboration between the football family and the wider community.
The 'phase one' survey is available online now.

Email and paper copies can be organised by request for those who are not in a position to access the online survey. For more info
