#PrimaryColours is funded by the UEFA Foundation for Children and is a joint project with The FA PE Team, Premier League Primary Stars and Colour Blind Awareness.

The purpose of the project is to use the power of football to raise awareness in schools of the issues colour blind children face in the classroom.

Our #PrimaryColours Partners

We are proud to have won the UEFA Foundation for Children Award in 2019 on behalf of England – click here for more information . We decided to use the award to support as many colour blind children in England as possible by combining our work in football with our work in primary schools. We are delighted to be supported in what has become the #PrimaryColours project by The FA PE Unit and Premier League Primary Stars.
