Community House Team (CHT)

Please note: As of May 2021, this service is no longer in operation.

The Community House Team (CHT) manages a number of shared houses and residential flats for homeless people who have a dual diagnosis of both mental health and substance misuse issues

Staff also provide a floating support service to people in the community who are at risk of losing their home due to their dual diagnosis.

CHT PIe - The Wallich Homelessness Charity - Psychologically Informed Environments

Residents and service users who use CHT’s services are supported to manage their health issues, develop coping strategies and gain independent living skills – either to maintain their current tenancy or to enable them to move into their own home.

This is achieved through support plans which are developed with and tailored to the individual.

The Wallich believes that homeless and vulnerable people are individuals with varied and different support needs.

It is proven that their successful recovery can be benefited by living in a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE).

CHT PIE - The Wallich Homelessness Charity

We want to provide innovative and trauma-informed services, like our Community Housing Team in Cardiff, and match people as best we can can to support which suits them.

CHT was the first Wallich project to undergo an extensive PIE transformation and has pioneered best practice for the rest of the charity.

Project staff are available 7:30am to 11pm seven days a week with an ‘On Call’ service through the night.

Close liaison is necessary with mental health and drug or alcohol agencies to ensure residents’ ongoing needs are addressed.
