At Queen of the South FC we are committed to supporting our wider community far beyond the 90 minutes on match day. We believe football can be used as a force for good that has numerous social benefits – including reinforcing collective identities, improving self-esteem, inspiring young and old, promoting wellbeing and healthy living and contributing to social inclusion. Football is a powerful tool for engagement and we at Queen of the South FC believe we have a duty to give something back to our community and deliver real social change.
