Established in 1978, The Wallich is a homelessness charity dedicated to helping the most excluded people in our society; vulnerable people with multiple and complex needs who often cannot access any other accommodation or support services. We work together with other agencies and government to deliver innovative solutions to homelessness that are as diverse as the people we help.
We help people to find the accommodation and support, which will enable them to live safer, happier and more independent lives. We support over 1000 people a day, employ some 200 people and operate more than 50 projects across 15 Local Authorities in Wales. For those people who are forced to sleep rough, our Rough Sleepers Intervention Teams will provide a hot breakfast and help to get off the streets. If poor mental health or drink and/or drug use is ruining a person’s life, one of our specialist supported accommodation projects will help them find stability. If someone is in danger of losing their home due to family breakdown, debt or health problems, our Tenancy Support Services will try to prevent them from becoming homeless. If renting a home is impossible due to lack of a deposit, our Bond Board Schemes will provide people who need help with a bond and secure them a place to live away from expensive and unstable temporary accommodation.
The Wallich has succesfully housed many who have been street homeless, helped those with severe social problems and supported many people in rebuilding their lives after experiencing homelessness.
