SHEIN is proud to have been a sponsor of the third Football for Change charity gala, on November 18, 2023.
Football for Change brings together football stars and business leaders with a collective goal to change the lives of young people living in the most deprived communities in the UK, focusing on school leavers who are not in employment, education or training (NEET), in neighbourhoods affected by low educational attainment and high levels of youth unemployment. Football for Change has raised more than £1 million to date that will go towards programmes to aid social mobility as well as education and employment opportunities.
“The support from SHEIN for Football for Change has been incredible. It is because of this support that we are able to change the lives of young people who need it most. The partnership between Football for Change and SHEIN is a force for good.” – Jamie Carragher, Co-Chairman, Football for Change.
“SHEIN is committed to supporting grassroots initiatives in the UK. We believe in the power of sports to uplift and empower local communities, providing constructive outlets and positive role models, teaching valuable life lessons, such as teamwork, and perseverance, and promoting a healthier and active lifestyle,” said Cui He, Director, SHEIN Europe. “Sponsoring Football for Change’s Charity Gala furthers SHEIN’s efforts to leverage the reach and positive impact of football to benefit underserved communities, including women and young girls.”
SHEIN had previously sponsored the inaugural Women’s Football Awards, celebrating sportswomen and role models who have made a positive difference to the growth of the sport.
In September 2023, SHEIN announced an injection of US$35million over the next five years to expand or fund new global or in-country social impact activities focused on empowering women, promoting gender equality, supporting the development of young people and poverty alleviation.
