Lockdown has presented a range of challenges to the sector, but we have responded in kind to continue working with individuals, providing support, and working towards positive outcomes. We are proud to have risen to the challenge.

  • Moved 1 person into one of a vacancy in our Community Houses, and supported 2 individuals to move on successfully
  • Facilitated 520 interactions with 107 individuals across our Outreach services in Swansea and NPT, 33% of which were new clients, and accommodated 68 individuals accessing Outreach into temporary accommodation.  
  • Kept our 24hr projects running with the support of staff from across the organisation
  • Completed 28 Wellbeing Scale (WEMWBS) questionnaires with our clients
