“The Homeless World Cup gave me ambition back in my life”

 INSP 18 July 2019

Stephanie Tweed was one of the stars of the home team at this year’s Homeless World Cup in Glasgow. It’s a massive step for the talented striker, who just last year was homeless and struggling with a heroin addiction. She says that the faith of the team at Street Soccer Scotland allowed her to rediscover her self-worth. She’s now living in supported housing and hoping to get her own flat soon. (890 Words) - By Laura Kelly and Alison Gilchrist
