Anstoss! e.V. Bundesvereinigung für Soziale Integration durch Sport
Anstoss! e.V. Bundesvereinigung für Soziale Integration durch Sport (Kick off! National Association for Social Integration through Sports) uses sports – especially street football – as an integral part of social and welfare work, particularly with homeless people. They aim to raise the profile of sports for social work nationally. They work with universities in Kiel and Hamburg to evaluate and develop their programme, as well as guidelines for good practice on the basis of sound scientific evidence.
Some of their regional projects are supported by professional clubs such as Hamburger SV and Werder Bremen.
