The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a charity registered in Scotland. Our main work involves the facilitation and growth of a network of social organisations around the world that use football to help improve the lives of people who have been excluded from society. Often this exclusion results in an individual experiencing a period of homelessness.We currently have 74 official national partner organisations in five continents.The size of the Homeless World Cup Foundation remains small at the centre with just three employees. However our reach extends globally and we are also responsible for the organisation and management of the annual Homeless World Cup tournament. This has been held every year since 2003. Last year this took place in Santiago, Chile with 54 national teams taking part in specially constructed stadia opposite the Presidential Palace. 100,000 people came to watch 350 live games over 8 days and to see how football has helped to change the lives of the players taking part.Our aim through this project is to improve the quality of our existing partners in Europe and indeed around the world by helping them share their specialist knowledge through learning exchanges, partner conferences and development workshops. We will align these each year with micro scale versions of our annual tournament to help with visibility, awareness and dissemination at general public and public policy level.In doing so we will help increase participation levels throughout all of our European partners’ football programmes and we will see positive progression towards long term social inclusion for people taking part.This particular project will involve 23 of our European partner organisations.
