We are extremely proud of two of our young people who are enrolled at Chelsea’s Street Soccer Academy. They were recently involved in a football tournament and successfully won the league, receiving a gold medal each!

This nationally acclaimed flagship programme delivers learning and personal development for 18-25 year olds, who will benefit from a fusion of professional football coaching, growth/positive mindset training, and skills and employability workshops. This specially crafted ‘hat-trick’ will enable participants to fundamentally improve their skills, health and wellbeing, and mindset, thus enabling them to be ready and able to move into work, education, or further training upon successful programme completion. The mix of FA-qualified community football coaching in conjunction with fun and educational workshops will also help improve young people’s’ self-belief, build confidence and resilience, as well as improve their aspirations and outlook.

Fundamentally, the programme is predominantly focused on inclusion and attendance as well as improving behaviour and engagement. Using the power of football will help young people want, and be able, to make a change in their lives for the better. The proven impact of the programme instils greater self-belief in young people and empowers them to take positive action. It also encourages them to reach their goals, both on and off the pitch, and to inspire others to do the same.
