Street Soccer Scotland is adding another new location to its programmes, with the launch of its Network Programme session in Stenhousemuir in February.
The programme 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. It will begin as a five-week SCQF course which will allow participants to learn and grow. Each player will learn new coaching skills and how to manage a football event with a Level 4 SCQF certificate to recognise their new-found knowledge and skills.
“We are thrilled to bring the Network Programme to Stenhousemuir and offer the local community access to our life-changing services,” said Stuart Lovell, Network Manager of Street Soccer Scotland. “Our programmes have a proven track record of success in improving the lives of the individuals we serve and we’re excited to expand our reach to the community of Stenhousemuir and the wider Forth Valley area.”
The Network Programme in Stenhousemuir will be run in partnership with Stenhousemuir FC’s Warriors in the Community and supported by Forth Valley Recovery. The sessions will be delivered by experienced staff who will provide support and guidance to participants through football-themed activities and personal development workshops, with the first of sessions starting at the end of February.
In addition, the programme will also provide job skills training and educational opportunities to help individuals achieve their goals and overcome obstacles. “Street Soccer Scotland’s Network Programme has the potential to make a lasting impact in the lives of those who need it most,” said Blair Cremin of Warriors in the Community. “We’re pleased to be partnering with Street Soccer Scotland and offer this resource to our local community.”
