Housing Justice Roadshow in Bridgend

Housing Justice Roadshow - Bridgend 2015

The first Welsh Housing Justice Roadshow will bring together churches, Housing Associations, local authorities and other housing organisations. The aim of this ecumenical event (in partnership with Gweini and Wales & West Housing) 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 the situation worse for many families and single people.

Come and hear about the great work that churches are already doing across Wales, and be inspired to make a difference.

Power of Ten

Power of Ten by Gethin Russell-Jones (2013)New book shows how Christian collaborations are changing the face of Wales

This book tells the stories of ten partnerships between “compassion ministries” and local churches to serve their local communities. If you want to see your church reach out effectively to people living around it, this book will give you some great ideas to take that vision forward.

Prospects: How we can help you?

Prospects... Access to Life (logo)Prospects is a Christian organisation which enables and values people with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full.

Caring can be fun but exhausting.  As your child reaches adolescence you are aware that school and other children services will come to an end which may add to your worries.  Maybe you have organised all your adult child’s activities for years not knowing that you can have help. You may want some advice regarding church inclusion and bringing your child to faith.
