Sheffield United Community Foundation has partnered with the Sheffield United SuperDraw Lotto scheme. The SuperDraw Lotto is a lottery draw where players have the opportunity to win some fantastic cash prizes.
As part of our partnership, a donation is made to the Sheffield United Community Foundation who deliver a variety of fantastic projects supporting people living in Sheffield.
One of the Foundations strands supported by the partnership is ‘Education and Training’. Its aim is to provide a high-quality and alternative education provision for young people and adults who want to pursue a career in the sports industry.
In partnership with the Street Soccer Foundation, SUCF has launched a Street Soccer Academy which provides opportunities to 18-25s who are currently homeless or not in education, employment, or training to learn new life and employability skills from our expert education and coaching staff.
The Street Soccer Foundation is an award-winning charity operating nationwide throughout England. Its nationally acclaimed flagship programme, the ‘Street Soccer Academy’, is the number one football-led project tackling youth homelessness in England.
Joe Williamson, Education Manager, SUCF, comments,
“We are very excited to finally announce the new project in partnership with Street Soccer Foundation. We have been working hard behind the scenes during the pandemic to make sure the programme could take place as soon as physically possible. The Street Soccer Academy will be a welcome addition to our current education and employability offers.”
