here - Housing Justice

Bridgend
29 Jan’15
10:00 to 15:00
In partnership with
Gweini and Wales & West Housing
The first Welsh Housing Justice Roadshow will bring together
churches, Housing Associations, local authorities and other
housing organisations.
The aim of this ecumenical event is to encourage and motivate
churches to be part of the housing solution in Wales and to work in
partnership with others.
There is significant housing need in all areas and this roadshow will
be an opportunity to share good practice and discuss how working
together can bring real change to communities.
Across the nation, homelessness and lack of decent housing have a
devastating impact on lives. The introduction of welfare benefit
reform has made this situation worse for many families and single
people.
Come and hear about the great work churches are already doing
across Wales, and be inspired to make a difference.
