The Wallich launched the first Housing First project in Wales on Anglesey.
Five years since its launch in 2013, we report on the successes and key statistics from the project.
Over the past five years, 74% of those we’ve supported have successfully secured and maintained accommodation.
Housing First works on the premise that, rather than expecting a person currently living on the streets to go through several steps to reach independence, they should instead be offered an independent tenancy first with no prerequisites for access and they should receive intensive and assertive support.
Our approach is trauma-informed and follows a therapeutic model of support.
