"Street League are amazing because they use the power of football to help young people from the most disadvantaged communities get into work, education and training."
Robin van Persie, Street League Ambassador
Street League Renfrewshire recently received a visit from local MP Gavin Newlands. The Scottish National Party MP was on hand to answer questions and gain an insight into how the unique sport for employability charity changes the lives of unemployed young people in the area and throughout the UK. Current and former Street League participants took part in a bubble football event at On-X Sports Centre in Linwood.
England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has praised the work of Street League after the charity featured in a BT Sport documentary. In the documentary called 'Football Stories with The Ox', the 21-year-old Arsenal winger highlights the work of two charities backed by BT Sport’s Supporters Club initiative, Street League and Tackle Africa.
Street League have been celebrating another fantastic season of support from Soccer AM. Graduates from one of the charity’s London Academies attended the popular Sky TV programme’s last show of the 2014-15 season, and were presented with a donation for almost £4000 by presenters Max Rushden and Helen Chamberlain.
Young people on Street League's Academy refurbished the on-site facilities at a local community centre as part of their work placement week with Willmott Dixon recently. Willmott Dixon are one of the country's leading construction, residential development and property support services.
