Imagine having nowhere to live.
What would you do? Where would you go for help? How would you survive?
For thousands of people in Wales, homelessness is a frightening reality. Fortunately, Llamau (pronounced Lamb - eye) can provide the accommodation, support and advice that is so crucial in times of crisis. Llamau is Wales’ leading homeless charity, working with homeless and potentially homeless young people and vulnerable women across Wales.
An established charity with head offices in Cardiff but projects across Wales, Llamau has been working for over 26 years, to offer support, help, accommodation and housing advice to homeless and vulnerable young people and women in Wales.
Our tenacious Chief Executive Frances Beecher has slept out as part of the CEO Sleep Out event at Cardiff Castle, continuing Llamau's ongoing work to raise awareness of homelessness in Wales.
The 90-strong event aimed to highlight the issue of homelessness in Wales whilst raising funds to support those in need.
"We're not trying to replicate what it's like to be homeless - we can't replicate the fear, the desperation and the helplessness," said Frances when asked by ITV about the event.
ITV interviewed Frances about the ongoing issue and the work Llamau are tirelessly doing to support as many people as possible. You can view her interview here.
