“We’re really excited to join the Street Soccer Academy network and bring the project to Portsmouth. Football provides so many under appreciated opportunities to grow whether it’s a safe space to use as a release, increase physical participation/exercise or provide potential employment/education opportunities.

So being able to utilise football as the vehicle to support individuals’ personal development across mental and physical health is a narrative, we’re incredibly passionate about and can’t wait to get started.”

Taylor Monk, Head of Community Development
