I'd like to drive to my goals

I am a young man with a huge passion and love for football and more specifically football coaching. I have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and I am seeking some funds to help me further my ambition of becoming a successful football coach. At present I have achieved my Football Association (FA) level 1 in football coaching. I am studying a BTEC level 2 in sports coaching. I also play for a local grassroots disability football team. I also enjoy my time as a volunteer football coach in my local community. I find it all very rewarding. Because of my passion for coaching, it is my ambition to coach professionally and have my own business doing so. I would wish to be flexible and offer my services to as many people as possible. Football involves many very early morning starts for training and visits to compete across the country. As coach I would be responsible for taking equipment such as footballs, cones, bibs and mini nets and a first aid to name a few. It is impossible to carry this equipment without transport. So I am asking for your help towards the cost of the purchase and initial running of a car. As a young person the insurance costs alone are quite expensive. With your help I will be able to establish my business and start up for my first year. I was extremely privileged to experience and take part in football sessions since I was young. It really did give me the confidence to socialise with others especially large groups or teams. This can be a very daunting time for many like myself who have Autism. My aim is to encourage, inspire and create new opportunities for people with learning disabilities in sport, football and the local community and beyond. My long term goal for the football coaching would be to establish my business in my local community and I would aim to scale and franchise the business across the county and eventually across other parts of the country. These much needed funds would be greatly appreciated not only for myself but for the many autistic or people with learning difficulties that this money can help inspire, impact and give much enrichment to peoples lives.
