Arsenal and Islington Council 5-a-side event

Last Wednesday saw a well-attended 5-a-side tournament organised by Islington Council and Arsenal In The Community to bring attention to potential rise in Domestic Abuse during World Cup. 

Arsenal Community Hub was the ideal venue for this kind of event, and we saw some great networking opportunities. The event delivered a strong message and we played some great football!

Vital front line service agencies had stands at the event including Solace Women's Aid.

There was robust support at the event from Councillors, Police, council officers from across the authority, and the Arsenal Community Foundation.
