Great Grass

Based at football league clubs, Great Grass provided a structured introductory course for homeless people as a progression route to recognised training courses and employment.

Great Grass built on the success and experience of our Great Day Out programme and was developed jointly by Eden, the Football League Trust and Cisco Systems.

Running in London, Great Grass offered a combination of IT training with practical skills in, for example, health and physio, media and PR, catering and nutrition, landscape and grounds maintenance together with team sports including tactics, skills, fitness, aspiration and dedication.

Great Grass continues beyond Eden, now managed by Living Networks.
