Cardiff Social Responsibility
We believe that everyone deserves the right to a home, but more than that, that everyone deserves the right to feel safe, to feel valued and to feel positive about their future.
The Wallich, doing something about homelessness in Wales
The Wallich believe that everyone deserves the right to a home, but moreso that everyone deserves the right to feel safe, to feel valued and to feel positive about their future.
The Wallich operates under three core objectives: getting people off the streets; keeping people off the streets; and creating opportunities for people.
1. GETTING PEOPLE OFF THE STREETS
Their Rough Sleepers Intervention Teams (RSIT) continue to help the most vulnerable and chaotic homeless people on our streets by providing outreach in the form of hot food, advice, referrals and pathways out of homelessness.
2. KEEPING PEOPLE OFF THE STREETS
They provide accommodation and support that consists of residential projects in which they temporarily support people in accommodation that they also manage.
These include direct access hostels, emergency night shelters and accommodation for people with specific issues such as substance misuse or mental health issues.
3. CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE
They have learning and employment projects that are a range of services to encourage the people we support to use their current skills or gain new ones, in order to get back into volunteering, education or employment.
They also provide training courses, volunteering opportunities and practical workshops to support people to become work-ready.
