USE FOOTBALL TO HELP DISADVANTAGED YOUNG ADULTS
How do I do that?
For 16 - 25 year old NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) groups, offenders and substance users having a regular football session to commit to can start to introduce order into their chaotic lives. Turning up for training encourages discipline and taking part develops teamwork. They’re all traits that are essential if someone is to get back into sustainable work, education or training and turn their life around - and 72% of the people Street League help do exactly that.
What does it cost?
£20 will pay for a player to take part in a football session and start making some positive connections.
When will I see the difference?
When we've raised enough to fund five Street League five-a-side football sessions (£1000 - 10 players x five sessions x £20 per player).
What will I see?
We’ll be standing by with the camcorder, interviewing those who took part.
