Gareth Leonard, from our GDAS team attended Street Football Wales’ event in Newport giving harm reduction advice, handing out leaflets and providing information on services.
It was an excellent day with many agencies such as The Wallich YMCA, Dyfodol and the Big Issue 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 (holding GDAS leaflets) all came through services such as GDAS. Michael Sheen is the patron for Street Football Wales and got a photo with him with our leaflets.
This years Street Football World Cup will be held in Bute Park Cardiff, from 27th July – 3rd August.
There is also a 3 part documentary staring on Monday 10.30pm on BBC1 on last years teams, this emotional documentary shows the players go through their journey, so please watch if you can!
