Gareth was sleeping rough for 3 months before accessing facilities at the Council’s hostel Ty Tresillian. Watch him, with his key worker Keith, explain how services are making a difference to his life.
Speaking on the support available, Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Lynda Thorne, said:
“We want to engage with people to discuss their personal circumstances and wishes and to develop a plan which can help them.
“Individuals sleeping rough, whether in tents or on the street, are some of the most vulnerable people in our city and we are seriously concerned about their welfare and safety.
“We want to support people and to help them get back on their feet. Helping people off the streets is not an easy task at any time because of the complex problems they often have but there is enough accommodation for rough sleepers in Cardiff.
“We can deliver tailored recovery packages to rebuild their lives and we’ve already helped 204 people last year into accommodation, people who were once out there in the same position.
“We want everyone still on the streets to come in to allow us to do the same for them.”
