The Bridgend Young People’s Projects consists of three schemes which provide accommodation and support to homeless young people in the area

MAC (Multi Agency Complex Needs) scheme

Provides 24-hour supported accommodation to five homeless young people aged 16-21.

The young people we support have complex needs such as behavioural, substance misuse, mental health and offending issues.

Young People's Homeless Accommodation Wales

Staff work with the young people to address their individual needs, working alongside other agencies such as probation, youth offending service and social services.

Overall, the aim is to build the young person’s independent living skills enabling them to maintain their tenancy when they move into their own accommodation, prevent reoffending and prevent future instances of homelessness.

The 18-21 project

Provides homeless young people in Bridgend and Maesteg with shared supported accommodation and support.

Helping homeless young people in Wales

Staffing is provided 24/7 and we support the young people with their personal development around issues such as:

The young people we house are usually supported for up to 12 months before they move on into their own home.

Step Down

A move-on service which provides single and shared flats and houses for up to 20 homeless young people in the Bridgend area who have less intensive support needs.

Support is usually provided for up to six months and often includes help with their personal development, with a particular focus on independent living.

Homelessness, accommodation and tenancy support - homeless charity Wales

We also provide outreach support to young people after they have moved-on from one of the three schemes into their own independent accommodation.

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).

We want to provide innovative and trauma-informed services, like our young people’s projects in Bridgend, and match people as best we can can to support which suits them.
