Street Soccer Scotland Player
Playing it Forward.
A familiar face joined us at our Street Soccer Summer Festival this week. John, 45 from Edinburgh has been attending Street Soccer for just over 2 years but this time he had a different reason for coming along. John has recently started work as Outreach Support Worker with Edinburgh based Homelessness Charity, Cyrenians and brought a new group of players along for the first time. Something which he takes great pride in.
Street Soccer gave me a sense of belonging and life skills. It became my family and my home and provided me with a support network. I developed people skills which I didn’t have before and I learned about myself, how to treat people fairly and helped me find a positive attitude to life
