The Wallich is a Welsh homelessness and rough sleeping charity that believes in a Wales where people stand together to provide hope, support and solutions to end homelessness.
Running 68 diverse projects, across 18 local authorities, The Wallich works with more than 9,000 people experiencing homelessness each year and across Wales.
As Wales’s largest homelessness and rough sleeping charity, The Wallich has three aims:
Getting people off the streets
The Wallich’s Rough Sleepers’ Intervention Teams (RSITs) operate in Cardiff, Swansea, Bridgend and Newport and Wrexham.
Keeping people off the streets
The Wallich works tirelessly to identify the causes of homelessness and match them with longer-term solutions. Suitable hostels, supported and temporary accommodation all provide a shelter. Other support services, including substance misuse and mental health management, work with vulnerable people to develop and prevent future homelessness.
Creating opportunities for people
Structured learning and employment programmes at The Wallich encourage participants to use their current skills, or gain new ones, in order to get back into volunteering, education or employment.
