SCOTLAND

ADULT PROGRAMME
Our football programmes are in place to help socially excluded men, and women across Scotland feel better about themselves and their future.

LET'S PLAY!

Our football programmes are in place to help socially excluded men and women across Scotland feel better about themselves and their future. We believe that football is a great tool for connecting with one another, breaking down barriers and making positive changes.

People’s circumstances are often complex, but helping them is not. We know being part of a team can give players a sense of belonging, build confidence, encourage friendships and improve wellbeing. And we believe these are the best goals you can ever have in life. 

Our programmes offer our players purpose, relationships and a connection to other support services and opportunities.

And the more people who turn up to play, the more people we can help.

OUR VALUES

Street Soccer is a family; providing a sense of belonging and consistent support for everyone.

Players Always Come first

If in doubt we base our decisions on what is best for our players

We look to the future

We don’t dwell on the past, we provide hope for what is to come

WE NEVER LEAVE ANYONE BEHIND

We work as a team and make sure everyone stays involved

WE PLACE OTHERS BEFORE SELF

We take delight in selfless acts every day

WE KEEP OUR PROMISES

We don’t dwell on the past, we provide hope for what is to come

TOGETHER WE ARE A FAMILY

We work as a team and make sure everyone stays involved

ENGAGEMENT

We run free informal football drop-in sessions and support programmes all across Scotland

DROP-IN SESSIONS
& TOURNAMENTS

These sessions are often the first step players take into the safe, welcoming and positive environment of a friendly football game. 

Our free weekly matches give them a chance to meet new people, get fit and feel good about themselves. They don’t need any experience or kit to join in, they can just turn up and play. 

Many of our staff can give first-hand advice on housing, mental health support and employment options.

WOMEN’S PROGRAMME – STREET 45

Our Street 45 programme is structured to appeal to female players using ‘football themed’ exercise and aerobic sessions. 

Sessions are broken down into two halves – 45 minutes of fitness, followed by 45 minutes of personal development. 

Our female staff offer peer support and mentoring, and we also offer players the opportunity to take part in first aid, sports coaching and CV workshops. 

PRISON PROGRAMME

A focus on football and an individual personal development programme help players build trust, make friends, develop self-awareness and gain self-confidence. 

We encourage them to stay in touch on release, continue to play and make use of our partner services. 

Our goal is to help players settle back into society again – reducing the chances of re-offending and improving their chances in life.

TEAM SCOTLAND

We’re proud to select, coach and mentor the Men’s and Women’s Homeless World Cup teams who represent Scotland at the Annual Homeless World Cup. 

This global event raises awareness of homelessness while creating life changing experiences for the players.
