SPORT FOR homelessness, vulnerably housed, seeking asylum, minority groups / offenders / ex-offenders

 The project works with individuals and groups who may be experiencing one or more of the following: homelessness, vulnerably housed, seeking asylum, minority groups and offenders / ex-offenders.
Street Life Soccer also provides preventative work for those at risk of becoming homeless with the opportunity to learn new skills, gain qualifications and integrate with new peer groups, weekly football coaching and National Open Collage Network accredited training. This approach supports progression into further education, volunteering, training or employment.
Street Life Soccer uses football as the tool to engage participants and provide a routine that allows participants to access social and health benefits. All education elements are then linked back to the sporting disciplines required, allowing for key skills development. Participants have the opportunity to set goals for themselves, no matter how big or small and are given the support to monitor these progressions.
Participants also have the opportunity to earn sports clothing as part of a reward scheme and to play in regular, competitive tournaments.
