Street Football Association themed PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistant position advertised at Leeds Beckett University, Carnegie School of Sport

Men and women who are experiencing homelessness consistently report poor health and are amongst the most excluded groups in society and this forms the case for effective intervention.

In partnership with professional football clubs across England, the Street Football Association Training Programme develops functional life skills and aims to improve the health and wellbeing of men and women experiencing homelessness.

The Street Football Association Training Programme, is an evolution of the award-winning Homeless FA Training Centre Programme. This new programme launched in April 2016, is year-round activity, with weekly sessions designed to develop both football and functional life skills delivered at a host of professional football club partners, and participation in national and international football tournaments.

This PhD provides a unique opportunity to establish the effectiveness of the Street Football Association Training Centre Programme and develop research on the impact of football-led health improvement with people experiencing homelessness. Outcomes aspire to impact practice and shape interventions for this underserved group.
