Llamau Press Release

Newport County AFC are delighted to welcome homelessness prevention charity Llamau to Rodney Parade next Tuesday evening for the match against Accrington Stanley and encourage all supporters to donate generously to their Bucket Collection.

Llamau’s mission is to eradicate homelessness for young people and vulnerable women in Wales. Founded over 30 years ago to provide homeless teenagers in the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff with a safe place to stay, it is Llamau’s belief that no young person or vulnerable woman should ever have to experience homelessness.

Many people think the job of a homelessness charity will be to provide accommodation - a safe place to stay. Llamau believes that for most people who are facing homelessness, their problems are far more complex than a lack of permanent shelter. Llamau treats everyone who needs their support as an individual: they recognise their unique strengths and needs and make sure that they are supported to rebuild their futures.

Last year, Llamau supported 8,669 young people and vulnerable women across Wales to leave homelessness behind for good. Llamau offers a range of holistic services to prevent homelessness, which include supported housing, including women-only accommodation, tenancy support, refuges for women and children, family mediation, housing and welfare advice, outreach for 14 – 19 year olds, and prevocational learning and training.

Llamau is a values-led organisation which puts the people it supports at the heart of the organisation. These values mean that Llamau can offer the highest quality support and empathy. Llamau’s values are; We Respect, We Listen, We Encourage, We Learn, We Don’t Give Up.

Please donate if you can to help fund Llamau’s vital services for young people and vulnerable women in Wales.
