Devon's homeless in football competition

Homeless football is about more than just a game.

Playing sport encourages fitness, self-confidence and discipline.

It can better equip people who have been homeless to move on, to live independently in the community, gain qualifications and find work.

Our aim is to enthuse more homeless projects to develop sports schemes within their local area and build sustainable working partnerships to support homeless people in every possible way.

– Dean Ashton, Sports Development Officer, Chapter 1
