Join our City in the Community network


Are you involved in a community football program that makes a difference in the lives of disadvantaged youth, new arrivals, asylum seekers, long term unemployed, people with disabilities, prisoners and incarcerated youth, seniors or others?

Would you like more support to run your program or are you keen to enhance your skills to develop and deliver your program? Or do you just want to learn more about football for development programs?

City in the Community are now convening quarterly forums to bring together people from across the sector to collaborate, share information and access professional development opportunities with special guest speakers and trainers.

The network is open to coaches, programmers, community workers, carers, volunteers, policy makers or other interested parties.

The network will be chaired by George Halkias best known for his work with the Community Street Soccer Program of the Big Issue and the City Strikers Walking Football Program for City in the Community.
