Street Football Wales is there for people when they have reached that point. It’s an opportunity for people to be involved in something where they will not be judged or stigmatised.

SFW developed and delivers its Training & Education programme to participants from within SFW attending and gaining qualifications. Participant volunteers are actively involved in the delivery of the project with participants attending monthly Branch Meetings.

The International participation (Homeless World Cup) programme has also been incredibly successful during the past 10 years with record numbers of participants being assessed during the 2013 season. SFW also facilitates a female programme to enable representation from this group at the HWC.
