TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH FOOTBALL
We are a charity that uses football and sport to bring positive change to people's lives.
Our programmes tackle homelessness, unemployment, addiction and mental health issues and more.
We also run two Social Enterprises to generate income for the charity, Street Move and Street Store.
Street Move is a 'man with a van' removal service supporting people with house and office moves, deliveries, house clearances etc. Street Move also runs a 2nd hand furniture and clothes shop from our office in Botanic Avenue selling beds, electrical appliances, cupboards and more.
Street Store is a shop selling new electrical appliances and beds at affordable prices.
