Cymorth Cymru, CHC and Welsh Women’s Aid urge Welsh Government to increase housing support funding
Posted in the News Category
A new report released this week reveals funding for vital Welsh services including homeless hostels and women’s refugees were cut by £37million* between 2012 and 2018.
Cymorth Cymru’s ‘Housing Matters’ campaign shows the negative impact the cuts have on local authorities, the third sector and social landlords.
Hafan Cymru will be supporting the ‘Housing Matters’ Campaign to joining our partners in vocalising that funding must be increased for the Housing Support Grant, which delivers homelessness prevention and housing-related support services in Wales.
The Housing Support Grant is the Welsh Government’s principal funding stream for preventing homelessness and supporting people to live independently. Every year it funds services that help more than 60,000 people to avoid homelessness, escape abuse, live in their own homes and thrive in their communities.
