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.


Going it Alone Project

The award winning Going it Alone project is funded by Welsh Government and Grŵp Cynefin, and works in partnership with Cartrefi Conwy, North Wales Housing, Conwy County Borough Council and Denbighshire County Council. The project’s aim is to prevent youth homelessness through education and raising awareness.

This is done by delivering:

  • an information and advice service for young people across Conwy and Denbighshire
  • a programme of early, targeted help to young people most at risk
  • a flexible outreach programme of support to young people in temporary and supported accommodation

You can read more about the project in this information leaflet.
