ABOUT
Our aim is to create purpose, hope and relationships using football to support people on their journey to security and happiness

OUR MISSION

Street Soccer Scotland uses football inspired training and personal development as a medium to empower people who are affected by social exclusion

We are built on lived experience – many of our experienced staff have faced the same issues and challenges as our players. We understand what it’s like to feel alone, and the huge difference that being part of a team can make.

Speaking from personal experience, CEO & Founder David Duke states “The effects of poverty are brutal & devastate communities. Living in this environment means people are faced with a lack of opportunity, which leads to a lack of hope.

I have experienced this & can only describe it as being locked in a cold & dark room with no doors. Waking up everyday with a feeling of hopelessness can lead to poor mental health, addiction, crime & in some cases death. 

That is why we are totally inclusive, respectful, and understanding while offering opportunity to anyone who needs it. We do not impose a time limit or any other expectations, only reassurance that we are here to inspire people to be all they can be.”

'I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work that Street Soccer Scotland is doing to help those in need'
