Homeless World Cup 2019 – Play Your Part

HWC01.jpgThe Homeless World Cup is coming to Cardiff - find out how you can play your part in ending homelessness in Wales…

The Homeless World Cup has always been about so much more than a football tournament. As well as delivering exhilarating football matches, it creates incredible opportunities for people who have experienced homelessness to develop their confidence, build on their strengths and represent their nation on the world stage. This year’s tournament also provides a fantastic platform for us to have an impact on public perception, homelessness policy and services in Wales. Michael Sheen, who brought the Homeless World Cup to Cardiff, has been very clear that he wants it to leave a real and lasting legacy.

That’s why Cymorth Cymru has been working with Michael and people who use and deliver homelessness services to develop a series of ‘calls to action’. Our belief is that ending homelessness in Wales is possible – but we need everyone to play their part. During the tournament our Play Your Part campaign will ask the public, business, housing and government to take action to end homelessness. Each of these groups will be asked to consider five actions – if they can all take at least one then we’ll be well on our way to making a difference.

Find out how you can play your part here.
