About Us

Street Soccer NI is a charity set up for the disadvantaged groups of society such as the homeless, people with addictions, mental health issues, ex prisoners, refugees, asylum seekers and long term unemployed. We aim to bring positive change to people’s lives using football. We run 10 weekly sessions in Belfast and Derry/Londonderry including women’s football and learning disability football. Around 100 people go through our sessions every week which last between 1-2 hours. Alongside the football we offer support with housing, employment, education, addictions, mental health issues and more.  We have been running as a charity since 2013 and are mainly supported by the Housing Executive, Department for communities, Belfast City Council, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and East Belfast Mission.
