The Big Issue - Street Soccer

Preview

In 2007, The Big Issue Australia launched an exciting new initiative that uses the power of sport as the catalyst to transform the lives of homeless and marginalised people across Australia - the Community Street Soccer Program.

Using the benefit of 13 years experience supporting homeless and disadvantaged people through The Big Issue Street Magazine Enterprise and learnings from a trial of the Community Street Soccer Program (commencing in 2004), the program was rolled out across the country.

The Community Street Soccer Program changes lives and builds healthy communities by re-connecting high risk participants with the community, providing opportunities and facilitation of positive life changes and enhancing social capital and providing an economic return to the Australian Community.
