April 8th 2015 sees the start of a new era for Street Soccer Academy as we launch into a brand new geographical area, in the North East of England. Over the next few days we will reveal more details of our plans to impact an area of our nation hardest hit by austerity measures and welfare reform.
Street Soccer Academy’s roots are firmly planted in the North West of England, dating back to 2005, when Andrew Thorp, SSA’s Chief Executive, began a project in central Manchester working with homeless men. Since it’s inception the work has grown into an award winning registered charity and social enterprise, working with whole families with complex and multiple needs, with regional centres across Greater Manchester and Lancashire
The venture into the North East will be supported by SSA’s HQ in Bolton and headed up by former SSA Greater Manchester Area Manager, David Wynd. David’s vast experience gained in supporting our programmes in the North West will bode well for a strong launch into this new area.
