A POSITIVE FOCUS
Our homeless rugby and football teams support past or present homeless players and anyone who wishes to participate in sport to find a new challenge and direct their attention to a positive focus by joining a team environment. They meet new people, feel like they have meaning and new responsibilities. We then also support them to make life changes and eventually find jobs and housing. Our homeless team plays regular games of touch rugby against other teams and train twice weekly. We strongly encourage our players who have been with us for a while to continue playing so they can help to support the new players coming in who were in their position in the past. This is invaluable experience that really brings the team together. We work closely with other organisations across Worcester who also support people in desperate need.
The project aims to give people a sense of worth and purpose which can really help with confidence and that feeling of belonging. The programme welcomes anyone with open arms, whether they have played rugby before or not.
