One of our Community Substance Misuse workers, Gareth Leonard, attended yesterdays Street Football Wales event in Newport giving harm reduction advice, handing out leaflets, giving information on services etc.

It was an excellent day with many agencies such as The Wallich YMCA, Dyfodol, the Big Issues amongst others entering teams at every event. The positivity their clients gained from the event was inspiring and all the Wales players that you see in the photos all came through services such as GDAS. Michael Sheen is the patron for Street Football Wales and Gareth got a photo with him too.

The Homeless World Cup will be held in Bute Park Cardiff from 27th July – 3rd August. Please head to to find out more about the tournament.

There is also a 3 part documentary starting on Monday 15th July 10.30pm on BBC1 on last years teams to see how football can help change lives.
