About LHFC & Our Patron

Liverpool Homeless Football Club was founded in 2007. We aim to provide the men and women of Merseyside free access to sports activities in a safe non-judgemental environment. Through harnessing the popularity of sport we create a trusting positive support network, which can give our members a framework to follow, that can help them rebuild their lives, or just keep them on the right path and allow them to fulfil their own potential. With our motto of #morethanjustfootball we use football as the activity to allow us engagement, inclusion, camaraderie, team-building, networking, positive mental health, confidence building, health advice and self esteem issues with people who need support. We offer training opportunities, sports sessions and general health and well-being events, that all encourage community involvement and cohesion.

The Homeless Back Kitchen Project

The Back Kitchen

The Back Kitchen is our outside catering trailer, with which we feed all matchday attendees. We also train up people with Food Hygiene Level 1 and 2 Certificates to improve employability and give life skills. We also hire out the Back Kitchen for events and parties with all proceeds going to support the people of Merseyside.

The Back Kitchen will also appear at the Pier Head where Liverpool City Council has allowed us a pitch for major events. When we are at the Pier Head we will be showcasing Chef created recipes which include an Open Scouse Pie with Beetroot Jelly designed by Michelle O'Dwyer.

If you see us when you're out and about, why not come along and try out our fantastic food, every meal purchased will help LHFC carry out its work. If you have the skills and desire to help us in the Back Kitchen or anywhere else in our organisation, then have a look at our Volunteer page and see if you can make a difference.
