Tata Steel has been a partner of Llamau for several years, having made generous donations to our Step into Programme in North Wales and Family Mediation service in South Wales, as well as supporting us through their annual Cold Truth Sleep Out in conjunction with The Wave & Swansea Sound.

As a major employer here in Wales, Tata Steel strives to enrich its local communities, contributing to their future economic and social wellbeing through a proactive Community Partnership Programme.

The theme of Tata Steel’s Community Partnership Programme is 'Future Generations' with particular focus on Education, Health and Wellbeing. These donations provide sustainable investment in initiatives that benefit 'Future Generations' in the communities in which Tata Steel operates.

Nia Singleton, Community Liaison Manager for Tata Steel says:

"At Tata Steel, we want to focus on supporting projects that are at the forefront of changing young lives here in Wales.  After visits to Llamau to see their work first hand, including on our doorstep in Port Talbot, we feel the work that Llamau does not only fits with our social values but also has a footprint in North and South Wales."

Nia continued,

"We know that preventing youth homelessness before it happens is key to ending homelessness in Wales, and we have been encouraged to hear that Llamau’s Family Mediation programme has prevented hundreds of young people from becoming homeless in the past few years.

We also recognise that many of the young people Llamau supports, have few qualifications and therefore may have more limited access to job opportunities. Llamau’s Learning for Life project in North Wales allows young people to re-think their longer term aspirations and re-engage with education. The project works alongside them to tailor educational and work experience, so that the young person will have better skills and qualifications in accessing jobs in the future. It was therefore a natural choice to support this under our 'Future Generations' project."

Barbara Redmore, Corporate Fundraiser at Llamau, added,

“Tata Steel are so on board with our mission to end youth homelessness here in Wales and we thank them for their generosity in supporting our work to create a world without homelessness."
