Cardiff Residential Services
Cardiff Residential Services works with homeless young people (aged 16-21) in Cardiff to provide them with accommodation at our Ty Bronna project - and help them in to independent living.
As well as accommodation, young people receive support to gain the skills to move on from Ty Bronna and live independently. This includes education, training and employment, understanding welfare benefits and tenancy rights, cooking and domestic skills and budgeting skills. We provide 24-hour support and house up to 13 young people at once.
Some of these young people have nowhere else to call home because their families no longer have space for them, they are living in unsuitable accommodation or leaving care.
Cardiff Residential Services has a heart for giving young people a fair chance in life.
Rees is one of the young people who came to Cardiff Residential Services. At 16, Rees got in with the wrong crowd and started drinking and smoking cannabis. He tells us how Church Army Residential Services has helped him to make a U-turn in his life and embark on his journey towards adulthood. Read Rees' story.
