To ensure Llamau continues to develop the most effective services, we are proud to be participating in several research projects.
Developing housing services which reduce reoffending
Llamau has recently undertaken a two year research, strategy and lobbying project to develop effective accommodation services for young people involved in the Youth Justice System. For more information about this project, please read more and the findings from the report can be found here.
Two of the projects are part of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme with two Welsh Universities. The organisations are working together in order to improve services at Llamau by transferring research into practice.
This research project will take forward a major finding of the research above. It looks at how housing is a crucial factor in preventing engagement with education, employment and training. Social enterprise is being explored as a way forward. For more information about this project, please read more
Llamau’s first KTP project has been undertaken with the Housing Department at the University of Wales Institute Cardiff. The project seeks to understand why a small number of young people don’t have a ‘positive’ outcome from Llamau’s services. For more information about this project, please read more
A second KTP project has recently started at Llamau working closely with Cardiff University department of Psychology and Cardiff University’s Neuroscience & Mental Health Research Institute. The project is investigating the interplay between personal characteristics and background, and whether this information could help Llamau create more targeted interventions.
