“Before the Homeless FA I was just surviving, but they made me realise that I wanted to start living. They saved my life.”

Becca, Team England 2012


Every person experiencing homelessness has the potential to turn their life around, and football can enable this transformation.


The Homeless FA is the national homeless football charity in England. We use football to empower every person experiencing homelessness by giving them the opportunity to develop their skills and abilities, gain self-respect and confidence, improve their health, and ultimately transform their life.

  • 100% of our players report increased confidence levels
  • 67% achieve an accredited leadership qualification
  • 63% progress into further education
  • 58% improve their housing situation
  • 29% gain full-time employment


Without a football none of this would take place

It costs around £250,000 to run our programmes each year. We urgently need funds to continue this life-changing work. You can make the difference.
