Housing Advice for Young People 

Housing Advice for Young People aged between 16 and 25 and their parents or Carers. If you are having difficulties at home, there is help available to you.


The Council's Housing Service, Childrens services and Llamau have joined together to open a one stop shop specifically for you. Llamau offers a wide range of advice services to help you at this difficult time. They can be reached on:


One Stop Advice Shop

236 Holton Road


Vale of Glamorgan

  • 01446 748852


They offer a mediation service that will try to help you to reconnect with your family so that you can stay at home (if it is safe for you to do so) permanently or until a planned move can be arranged with you, or just so that you can have some support from us while you are in alternative accommodation.


They can also offer an assessment from Children Services and Housing to see what extra support you need or want, such as referrals into supported accommodation, help accessing benefits and planning for permanent accommodation. Additionally, we can help you through the Learning4life project and with Careers Wales to access education, training, employment and voluntary opportunities.


If you are a parent or carer of a young person they can offer practical advice if you are struggling.
