    Moat, a housing association based in Kent, and Street League, a dynamic national charity, are working together to bring an eight week Street League Academy to Edenbridge, due to begin on Monday 21 October.

    Street League specialises in changing the lives of disadvantaged young people through the power of football. The Academy will combine CV advice, interview support, and guidance around work behaviours, with football drills, exercise and team building. All participants who complete the course come away with a sports leadership award – comprising both a first aid and coaching qualification.

    Moat, together with a number of local partners - West Kent Extra, Sevenoaks District Council, Kent Fire and Rescue, Kent People’s Trust, Sencio Leisure Centre - secured funding to bring the Academy to Edenbridge. The aim is to bring 16-35 year olds living in Edenbridge and Westerham who are not in work or training, into employment or further education. And Street League’s success speaks for itself - of the current academies across the UK there is a 81% success rate.

    Events are taking place as follows:

    Tuesday 1, 3, 15 and 17 October 2013
    · 2pm to 4pm
    · The ‘Kick About’, Lingfield Road Recreation Ground, Edenbridge TN8 5DX

    Tuesday 8 and Thursday 10 October 2013
    · 2pm to 4pm
    · King Georges Playing Fields, Costells Meadow off Quebec Avenue, Westerham TN16 1BL
