Wycombe Wanderers Sports and Education Trust (“WWSET”) has applied for funding for the re-start of the ‘STREET SOCCER’ Programme. A project with proven benefits for the town of Wycombe and its youth, WWSET require votes to secure this funding and deliver a number of objectives vital to those involved.
WITHOUT YOUR VOTE, THIS FANTASTIC PROGRAMME WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RUN
TO VOTE… Go to the following website and click VOTE!
It will ask you to register using Facebook, Twitter or with an email address and once registered your vote will be counted and will hopefully contribute to the running of this crucial programme.
Once registered and, following any necessary email confirmation, having activated your membership, filter nominated projects by selecting South East, as the location -> Most Recently Added as the Sort by -> and then WWSET.
The whole process is not as difficult as it might appear and the 15 minutes or so that it takes will be time well spent if it results in WWSET’s project being funded.
Voting closes on the 29th June. We are competing against another 95 projects. Judging by previous winners we should be aiming to achieve 1000 votes to be in with a chance of winning
What is ‘STREET SOCCER’?
Through organised and structured football sessions for up to 100 children and young adults on Saturday evenings in High Wycombe, WWSET have contributed to a drastic reduction in anti-social behaviour within the town and its surrounding areas.
Our town NEEDS your support and your vote to keep this project alive and kicking!
If enough votes are gained, the funding will provide the ‘STREET SOCCER’ programme to engage hard to reach youngsters (aged 11-25) in Wycombe and assist them in achieving an increase in health through sports participation and education, an increase in employability skills by providing qualifications and work experience opportunities, and to reduce levels of crime and antisocial behaviour.

The funding will also go towards hiring a suitable facility and equipment (footballs and bibs) for the ‘STREET SOCCER’ sessions to take place.
- Provide a sports participation youth engagement programme of “Street Soccer” sessions to engage hard to reach youngsters who traditionally have low levels of fitness, partake in limited levels of physical activity, & make poor healthy living choices
- Reduce levels of crime and antisocial behaviour which currently take place in the area of the planned sessions on Saturday evenings. Also we aim to promote and facilitate the building of stronger relationships between local youngsters and the police
- To provide 10 participants with the opportunity to undertake FA coaching and refereeing qualifications in order to ensure the ‘Street Soccer’ sessions are sustainable, and to provide employability skills
