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, Children's services and Llamau have joined together to open a one stop shop specifically for young people. 

 

Llamau

236 Holton Road

Barry

Vale of Glamorgan

  • 01446 748852

 

Llamau offers a mediation service which aims to keep you in your home (if it is safe to do so) permanently or until a planned move can be arranged.

 

They can also offer an assessment from Children's Services and Housing to see what extra support is needed, such as referrals into supported accommodation, help accessing benefits and planning for permanent accommodation. Additionally, Llamau 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 Llamau can offer practical advice if you are struggling.
