We use football to inspire homeless people to change and improve their own lives.


Hello everyone!

I've got your attention, now it's time to take your money ... and I need lots of it!

In September I'm going to be working to get more than 500 people off the street and to give them a new life with jobs, education, homes, family and good health. Your donation will directly affect these people and the results are that more than 70% of those involved do get a fresh start. These people get a real springboard into the future.

So, what exactly am I going to be doing? I will be one of just 30 global volunteers at the 2010 Homeless World Cup, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The charity takes a team of homeless people from 64 nations to Rio in September to raise money and awareness and to play football. 

My job now is to raise a massive £2600 - this pays players, volunteers, equipment, venues and more and between now and September, I will be working hard to raise the money and take part in other events, like my first half marathon. I know I've got to earn the money!

If you want to see a little of what happened at the 2009 World Cup, click here for a YouTube video. The Homeless World Cup is supported by UEFA, Nike, UN, Manchester United & Real Madrid and has ambassadors including Eric Cantona, Didier Drogba and Rio Ferdinand. It's a wonderful charity, based in Scotland, creating a positive future for homeless people.

About the charity

Homeless World Cup

RCN SC037091
The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a unique, pioneering charity which uses football to inspire homeless people to change their own lives. We support grassroots football programmes and social enterprise development through a network of more than 70 Street Football Partners. We provide a focus for—and celebration of—their year-round activity by organising and delivering an annual, world-class, international football tournament for national teams of men and women who are homeless. Since 2001, we have been committed to “changing the lives of people who are homeless through football.” Today, the work of our movement is varied and extensive - from building awareness about homelessness and raising funds for our activities, to organising our annual Homeless World Cup tournament. The Homeless World Cup Tournament is our flagship event. Delivered by the Homeless World Cup Foundation in co-ordination with a Local Organising Committee, the event brings together teams from all around the world for an inspiring week-long festival of football. Participating teams are managed by our Street Football Partners and are formed by men and women all of whom have experienced homelessness.
