What we've been up to this month:

Last month, four of our participants got the amazing opportunity to travel to Lyon, France during the Women’s World Cup. The group were selected to represent Sport 4 Life UK at the streetfootballworld Festival 19, along with 48 other delegation from across the world.

The theme of the festival was gender equality and the delegations took part in workshops and football tournaments, learning more about gender equality and learning how they can champion this in their own communities, in Birmingham.

The highlight of the trip was watching the World Cup Semi-Final between England and the USA live at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. The result wasn’t the one that we hoped for but the skills and memories the young people gained on this trip will have a lifelong impact.
