Tackling Homelessness

Homelessness is the most extreme form of social exclusion, and can have a devastating impact on an individual. Grŵp Cynefin supports a number of projects that aim to reduce homelessness.


Youth Homlessness Outreach Worker (Conwy)

The project aims to support and empower young people to make informed, positive decisions, and actively involve them in influencing the systems that affect their daily lives.

The project has two main objectives. The first is to encourage young people, through community development methodology, to interact with agencies such as the Youth Service, The Police, Social Services, Housing authorities/ associations, and other community projects. Such working partnerships are then able to encourage young people to discuss issues important to them, influence decisions, and promote participation and good practice.

The second is a preventative, educational service, offered to local Schools, Colleges and youth organisations. The Outreach Worker is able to deliver dynamic and flexible sessions, using the Shelter Cymru resource ‘Housemate’, to raise awareness on the multi-faceted issue of youth homelessness.

Llys Seion Hostel (Gwynedd)

Llys Seion is a block of 6 flats in Pwllheli. They have been specifically allocated for the use of homeless people with Gorwel offering support and advice to enable clients to achieve independent living. A floating support service also provides support to individuals in the community.

Floating Support (Gwynedd)

The Floating Support Scheme is a Gwynedd wide service to families and individuals living in housing association properties, private rented property, temporary accommodation or for home owners. The scheme aims to support them to live in their home independently and successfully.

Family Intervention Project (Gwynedd)

The Family Intervention Project provides intensive support to families at risk of being homeless due to their anti-social behaviour. The aim of the project is to work with families to prevent homelessness and breach of tenancy, reduce anti-social behaviour, working with external agencies and improving perceptions of safety in the community.
