Funded Coaching Badges
I'm sure many football fans have had the dream to sit in the dugout and manage their favourite club. While that's not always achievable, we can help people get a kick start towards that dream. As part of our commitment to helping the homeless, we offer funded courses for those who qualify. Our aim is to bring people in off the streets and teach them life skills and confidence that will help them succeed.
Liverpool Homeless FC are committed to providing opportunities for all our players to enable them to progress in life and achieve their own goals. We are affiliated to Liverpool County FA and work in partnership to offer support and assistance to any members who wish to become a qualified football coach.
The FA provides a series of courses to provide the guidance and knowledge to go from an average football fan to a qualified football coach at the elite level. LHFC can provide financial assistance for those players who show commitment and desire to achieve their Level 1 and 2 badges. Who knows, you could then be looking at your UEFA coaching badges.
How To Apply for Coaching Badge Funding
Simply give us a call on 0151 237 3986, or go to our contact form. One of our friendly staff at Liverpool Homeless Football Club will then talk you through the next steps. If you believe this may be a good opportunity for someone else then also get in touch with us. We may be able to reach out to them and see what help we can offer.
A Quote from a Previous Student
We have had many different people pass their training. Here is a quick word from one chap who is now a fully qualified, level 2 football coach.
“I left the army with PTSD and found myself homeless and sleeping in my car. I had all my possessions in the car with me and I would go to the Whitechapel centre for a wash and something to eat. I joined the footy team at the Whitechapel, going to the Liverpool Homeless match days and began to make friends and move on with my life. The club put me through my coaching badges and now I am Level 2 qualified. I am now the main coach at the club and better still I’m not living in my car anymore.”
