ESFA Charitable Partners
September 2018 saw the ESFA and UK Sepsis Trust make an exciting announcement about their new Charitable Partnership, seeing both of the organisations support each other into the new 2018-19 schools’ football season.
The opportunity for both organisations to work together will allow both the ESFA and Sepsis Trust to align and use their resources to greatly improve the knowledge that school children and their families have regarding the life threatening condition, which affects more than 250,000 people in the UK each year.
Hand in hand with the current Coronation Street storyline featuring Kevin Webster’s son Jack and his battle with the illness, the Sepsis Trust want to use this opportunity to reach out to children Jack’s age to really help them understand the signs and symptoms that they and their families should look out for.
There will be more to come from the partnership over October 2018, as the Charities work together to help roll out the Streets Against Sepsis campaign to primary school children in England.
“We’re so thrilled to be joining forces with the ESFA as their Associate Charity for the year 2018-2019. Coronation Street’s Jack Webster’s story may be fictional, but it accurately reflects the lives of real people who suffer with sepsis every day. With the ESFA, we want to ensure no family goes through Jack’s family’s pain. We will raise awareness of sepsis in communities, starting with schools, to enable people to advocate for their friends and family and encourage them to ‘Just Ask: Could it be Sepsis?'”
