The Society of St James has teamed up with Southampton FC’s Saints Foundation to provide Saints4Sport, a fantastic sports, fitness & education service for vulnerable people in Southampton.
Saints4Sport is free to all SSJ service users, and with leisure activities available daily, it can significantly improve quality of life, physical & mental health, self esteem, social interaction, goal setting, and motivation. In addition to this it can also create pathways into volunteering or education.

Because of the support of The Highfield Company, we were able to purchase a minibus to transport our service users to some sports sessions.
