Liverpool Homeless Football Club is about much more than football. How do we measure that?
We understand that it is very important to look at the impact LHFC has upon the lives of our players. We use an evidence based software called ‘Views’ to record all of our engagement and our outcomes.
We are also very keen to take part in research projects that demonstrate the benefits to what we do. Below is a brief overview of what has been completed so far and what is currently being undertaken:
In 2010 Homeless Link & Groundswell completed a study looking at LHFC in particular and how sport can help people suffering from homelessness.
