Burness Paull LLP support 24/7 helpline.
The helpline aims to be there for any player who requires support, advice or just needs a simple chat.
The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the world into a challenging time and, as such, many organisations have had to adapt and react to an ever-changing situation.
As a result of the UK-wide lockdown and government advised social distancing measures, Street Soccer Scotland’s daily drop-in football sessions have been cancelled until further notice. For a number of our players, these sessions provide much needed contact and social interaction as well as the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise.
In response to these cancellations, Street Soccer Scotland now provide daily, online video sessions. These sessions include fitness, well-being, recovery and general conversation and interaction.
In addition to this, Street Soccer have also launched a 24/7, free to call helpline. This helpline aims to be there for any player who requires support, advice or just needs a simple chat.
Street Soccer Scotland are proud and delighted at the continued support of Burness Paull LLP. The long-time Street Soccer supporters have pledged £10,000 which will help focus on supporting the continued availability of the helpline as well as providing support for players and their families.
Burness Paull LLP, Chairman, Peter Lawson said:
“Every organisation is being impacted by the coronavirus crisis and having to look at how they work. The support Street Soccer Scotland provides to people is invaluable, and it’s more important than ever that in challenging times like these they can continue to deliver vital assistance to those who really need it.
“Street Soccer’s 24/7 helpline service will be a lifeline to many players, and The Burness Paull Foundation is happy to play a small part in ensuring it’s expanded as quickly as possible.”
