Our floating tenancy support services enable people to remain independent as we coach them through setting up tenancies, utilising services in their community, accessing education, training & employment and physical and mental health services – preventing the threat of homelessness.
We are based in the heart of our communities in Cardiff, Newport, the Vale and Bridgend.


Bridgend START (Support To Achieve Resettlement Together)

Bridgend START is a project designed to support people released from the secure estate who are seeking housing related support.

We build on links with the private rental sector to find appropriate housing for those released from prison who are threatened with homelessness or with no fixed abode.

We deliver a preventative service to avoid prisoners becoming homeless on release and therefore decrease the risk of reoffending.

When do I become just a citizen?

This is a question we’re often asked by the people we coach through our refugee services. Re-establishing identity and individual strengths, skills, talents and aspirations – we encourage people to reframe their future.

We work alongside displaced people who have been made vulnerable by circumstance and who have a wealth of untapped skill to offer our communities.

We can’t fix the huge loss that people have suffered but we can join them on their journey to accessing education, learning languages and understanding their aspirations.

By recognising the cultural integration curve we understand that there is often a level of expectation and unmet need when people arrive in the UK. This model helps us to identify how we can help those who have experienced physical and traumatic loss.

We foster mutual support and a sense of community by creating opportunities for families to link together through day trips and events where those who have resettled provide support to new arrivals.
