Street Soccer Academy

Each young person comes to us with a different starting point with different needs and aspirations, so every time the Street Soccer Foundation will be supporting a young person’s individual journey - whether that be through our Academy or Schools' programme.

Current communities we support

Street Soccer Academy

The Street Soccer Academy is the No.1 football-led project tackling youth homelessness in England.
Our flagship Academy programme revolves around delivering best informed interventions developed around local needs. We regularly cross-reference advice from the Government Office for National Statistics to ensure we deliver on our charitable objects: to provide or assist in the provision of a service in the interests of social welfare, to target service delivery in areas and for those at most in need of support.

The Power of a Positive Mindset

Having the right, positive mindset is a crucial internal attitude for young people. Through our training of such, young participants will begin to believe in themselves and in their capacity to reach their goals and thus increase their own learning and development success.

Our Tutors will seek to nurture relationships which can provide an environment whereby course participants have a sense of belonging, a place where they feel connected. As such, the ground work is laid to enable a positive self-perception to develop and a pathway to achieve.

“The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their mind, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”

"The Street Soccer Academy is the most impactful programme I have worked on and delivered in over 10 years as a coach.

The participants in the Liverpool Street Soccer Academy have come on leaps and bounds in terms of their confidence and it's a real pleasure to see so much development in all those we are lucky enough to help"
