Street Soccer Scotland’s network programme is heading to Oban, with the programme running for seven consecutive weeks in partnership with the Hope Kitchen.
These sessions, designed for socially excluded adults and young people, will be held every Tuesday from 1pm to 2:30pm at the Atlantis Leisure Centre. The first session takes place today and will run every week, with the aim of rolling out a permanent drop-in session in the near future.
The programme aims to build confidence and self-esteem while tackling issues such as homelessness, mental health, addiction, and long-term unemployment through the power of football.
“We’re thrilled to bring our network programme to Oban and partner with the Hope Kitchen to make a positive impact in the community,” said Stuart Lovell, Network Programme Manager. “We believe that everyone deserves a second chance and through our programme, we aim to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for individuals to reach their full potential.”
The network programme is a unique opportunity for participants to develop new skills, make new friends, and improve their overall wellbeing. The sessions are led by experienced coaches and volunteers, with no previous experience required to participate.
