FFNAF is a pilot being run by Welcome Sports, Brisbane Lions and AFL Queensland. This program engages Case Support Workers from the Multicultural Australia network to provide opportunity for new settlers to connect with local community football clubs. This focusses on community connection and provides an opportunity for the whole family to become involved whether through participation, umpiring or volunteering through other roles.
Three community clubs involved in the pilot were Calamvale, Yeronga and Sandgate with over 70 participants enjoying the program. 2020 will see the great results of this program roll out through additional clubs throughout the Lions zone.
