The Homeless World Cup Foundation is an exciting charity, working in partnership with organisations in 74 countries around the world. Every year we touch the lives of 100,000 people who are homeless and more than 1m people since 2003.
We use street football to engage people who are experiencing homelessness and organise a high-profile annual street football tournament to act as a catalyst for change. The tournament provides a focus for our partners and players and helps us to raise awareness and change perceptions of people who are homeless – on average 80,000 people attend the tournament with over 2m watching online around the world. 77% of players state their lives changed significantly because of their involvement.
The Homeless World Cup Foundation is now seeking up to 3 Trustees to join our Board. The recruitment pack sets out what skills and experience we are looking for, in addition to a strong empathy with our mission.
Our players and partner organisations come from a wide range of backgrounds and we aspire for our Board to reflect that diversity and the diversity of the people of Scotland.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 7th December 2017.
