Help SET win £5,000 to keep Street Soccer alive

5 June 2015

Our Sports & Education Trust need your votes to receive funding to keep their Street Soccer programme up and running.

The Street Soccer project has proven benefits for the town of Wycombe and its youth, and WWSET require votes to secure this funding and deliver a number of objectives vital to those involved.

Without your vote, this fantastic programme will not be able to run.

To vote, go to the following website and click 'VOTE' - https://foundation.onefamily.com/projects/wycombe-wanderers-set-street-soccer/

It will ask you to register using Facebook, Twitter or with an email address and once registered your vote will be counted and will hopefully contribute to the running of this crucial programme.

What is Street Soccer?
Through organised and structured football sessions for up to 100 children and young adults on Saturday evenings in High Wycombe, WWSET have contributed to a drastic reduction in anti-social behaviour within the town and its surrounding areas.

Our town NEEDS your support and your vote to keep this project alive and kicking!

If enough votes are gained, the funding will provide the Street Soccer programme to engage hard to reach youngsters (aged 11-25) in Wycombe and assist them in achieving an increase in health through sports participation and education, an increase in employability skills by providing qualifications and work experience opportunities, and to reduce levels of crime and antisocial behaviour.

Check out our YouTube video asking for your vote!



The funding will also go towards hiring a suitable facility and equipment (footballs and bibs) for the ‘STREET SOCCER’ sessions to take place.

Project objectives
•    Provide a sports participation youth engagement programme of "Street Soccer" sessions to engage hard to reach youngsters who traditionally have low levels of fitness, partake in limited levels of physical activity, & make poor healthy living choices
•    Reduce levels of crime and antisocial behaviour which currently take place in the area of the planned sessions on Saturday evenings. Also we aim to promote and facilitate the building of stronger relationships between local youngsters and the police
•    To provide 10 participants with the opportunity to undertake FA coaching and refereeing qualifications in order to ensure the ‘Street Soccer’ sessions are sustainable, and to provide employability skills
