LBP and Street Soccer Scotland youth club Dalkeith and Mayfield Midlothian 6th July to 18th August

Street Soccer Youth ClubAre you aged 12 to 18 years old and interested in football? Lothian and Borders Police have been working in partnership with Street Soccer (Scotland) to develop a youth diversionary programme to be run throughout the summer holidays in a bid to engage with local youths and take into account the needs of the local community.

Street Soccer (Scotland) is a non-profit social enterprise that delivers a range of football related services, inspired by personal experience of how sport can create real positive change, whilst developing individuals into making positive choices in their lives. Young people will be provided with an opportunity to meet new people, improve their physical and mental health and increase their confidence.
