TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH FOOTBALL
We are passionate about bringing positive change to people's lives by offering help, community and hope for the future. Our programmes tackle homelessness, unemployment, addiction and mental health issues.
WHAT WE DO
We run free weekly football sessions across Belfast and Derry for men and women from disadvantaged backgrounds. Alongside the football we offer support around housing, employment, addictions, mental health issues and more.
We currently run 10 weekly sessions, working with over 120 people every week. Our projects include 6 sessions for men, 2 sessions for women and 2 sessions for people with Learning Disabilities.
We also have regular socials, tournaments and trips throughout the year including the annual Homeless World Cup.
