“We’re really pleased that the Welsh Government has acted to protect Supporting People funding, a campaign by Cymorth Cymru that we fully supported. But an 8.1 per cent cut to homelessness prevention is going to have worrying consequences – and is going to make it much harder to successfully implement the Housing (Wales) Act, Wales’ first piece of housing legislation.

We’ve been a strong supporter of the Welsh Government’s homelessness prevention agenda in recent years, and so we urge the Government to reconsider this cut. If we can’t keep people in their homes, the knock-on effects will be felt by local government, Supporting People providers, education and the NHS.” – John Puzey, Director, Shelter Cymru
