Street Soccer Academy is a professional service provider that specialises in the rehabilitation and reintegration of people with, or at risk of developing, complex & multiple needs. We work on behalf of some of the nation’s hardest to reach groups within our communities including, people with homeless related issues, ex-offenders, those recovering from addictions, mental health conditions, the long-term unemployed and socially isolated individuals.

Street Soccer Academy is experienced in producing sports-based education programmes for our service users. Through the use of pro social models we focus on affecting the attitudes & thinking of those who engage with us, with particular emphasis on their relationships and roles in society. Through the use of professionally organised sport we are all about helping our service users reach their full potential, creating for themselves a fulfilling and sustainable lifestyle.


Street Soccer Academy accepts referrals from welfare agencies and/or self referrals for individuals looking to attend a weekly football coach education & personal development programme; and who would benefit from additional support in respect to their identified needs.

Our regional centre programmes are open to males aged 18+ who are entitled to live and work in the UK. Please click the tab below for more information, including full criteria and contact details.
