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.
Llamau Launch Sleepout 2013!
Cardiff Council, Barclays Bank, Wales Co-operative Centre, Savills and Radisson Blu were all represented as we launched Sleepout 2013 today. With 6 months to go until the event, supporters and stakeholders came to Llamau’s head office to meet and chat about the Sleep Out and enjoy a buffet, provided by our popular Flooks Café.
To support the work that Llamau do with vulnerable homeless people in Wales, we run an annual Sleep Out event in Cardiff. While not intended to replicate the experiences of homelessness that so many of those with whom we work go through, the event serves as a reminder of how difficult it is to spend even one night without a secure roof over your head. More than this, however, Sleep Out is an excellent opportunity for team building, networking and having fun, with a range of different performers and events throughout the night and participants from numerous varied backgrounds taking part.
