We provide a range of supported accommodation; opportunities to take part in a range of activities within a community setting, and help those furthest from the labour market into work through volunteering and training as a route away from long-term benefit dependency. By supporting this event, you can help us to help vulnerable people of all ages improve their wellbeing, confidence, skills and help people reliant on benefits to improve their lives. Our youth and community teams can provide 1 to 1 support; help over 250 young carers and their families, and provide sexual health outreach programmes, childcare and well equipped community rooms. We also deliver youth clubs and various other opportunities across both Cardiff and Newport.
