SMS In the Community

Formed in 2020, the SMS Soccer Centre brings together the Community and the Education department of SMS Changing Lives School along with other community activities, clubs, including our international work, anti-discrimination projects and social actions plans for the community.

We use the power of football and sport to motivate, educate and inspire. We believe that the power of football can be harnessed to support communities and individuals.

Our key motive is football development programmes, the however with our school link we work on a broad range of initiatives focusing on employment, education, social deprivation, crime reduction, youth offending and much more.
