Street Soccer Scotland has been named ‘charity of the year’ at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) annual awards.
The charity provides free football drop-in sessions for people facing challenges ranging from poverty to mental health, and received the award for a range of activities including organising 2016’s Homeless World Cup in Glasgow.
David Duke, founder and Chief Executive of Street Soccer Scotland, said: “It is a great honour to receive this award.
“We would like to dedicate it to all our staff and volunteers who work 365 days a year to try and make our vision a reality.
“We also would like to dedicate it to our players who every day find motivation to change their lives for the better and overcome real struggles like homelessness and mental health issues.”
