Together we will end homelessness in Wales

In Wales our team in Swansea provides education, training and support for homeless people in South Wales.

We carry out research to understand homelessness in Wales and campaign for the changes needed to end it for good.

During our 50th anniversary year we published a long-term plan to end homelessness for good across Wales, Scotland and England.

There’s a lot going on for me now. It’s amazing. I’ve gone from that drunk, nobody wanted to know, to having my life back on track. People who know me can’t believe it. Have we got the right Adel? They ask. They can’t believe how much I’ve changed. But I wanted to change my life around.
