Street Soccer Scotland is pleased to be arriving in another new location, expanding its programmes into Clackmannanshire with the launch of a session in Alloa.
The programme, taking place at Alloa Athletic’s Indodrill Stadium, will provide a range of services and activities aimed at building confidence and self-esteem while tackling issues such as homelessness, mental health, addiction and long-term unemployment.
