Wilkinson Construction Consultants are pleased to announce that our chosen charity for 2013/14 is again the Homeless FA, who we supported in 2012/2013.
About Homeless FA
The Homeless FA is England’s national homeless football charity, supporting all initiatives that use football as a means of improving the lives of homeless people in England. We believe that every homeless person has the potential to change their lives positively, and that football can facilitate this transformation.
We use football to give every person experiencing homelessness in England the opportunity to develop their skills and abilities, to gain self-respect and confidence, to improve their health, and ultimately to transform their life. By promoting fair play and inclusiveness in the context of football, our primary focus is on personal and social development.
Central to our work is promoting positive self-perception of our players while challenging and changing public perceptions of homeless people. We encourage the homelessness sector to utilise the power of football, and empower the sporting world to recognise football’s potential to support the most vulnerable members of society. This includes education about the complex needs and challenges facing our players. We support relevant research, and the monitoring and evaluation of homeless football initiatives.
We select and manage Homeless Team England, and are the designated national partner of the Homeless World Cup. Every person experiencing homelessness in England has the chance to be part of this team. Priority is given to the personal growth of the players, promoting a positive image of what it means to be homeless in England.

Team England 2013 will be officially launched on 8th August at a special FA event at St George’s Park.

The event was a huge success with the team winning the Fair Play Award and James Buckley being voted the Coach of the Tournament.
