Pembrokeshire Care Society
Following the Welsh Government guidelines the majority of our staff are currently working from home. Due to this we are providing a reduced telephone service however if you find yourself faced with immediate homelessness please contact our colleagues at Pembrokeshire County Council on 01437 764551 or out of hours 03003 332222. Alternatively if you’re at risk of homelessness and require advice please get in touch through the Contact us and General contact form section of our website and one of our colleagues will call you to discuss.
PCS is a registered charity (No. 1048218/Companies House No. 3062605) and was founded in 1979. The initial aim was primarily concerned with the resettlement of offenders and PCS successfully managed an employment project and a victim support scheme. The aims and objectives have since altered as PCS now strives to assist all homeless persons with advice, assistance and advocacy to enable them to secure safe and affordable accommodation. Thus alleviating the stress which can lead to other related social problems.
Homelessness occurs for a variety of reasons and no one is immune. People have presented themselves as homeless to PCS as a result of relationship breakdowns (family, partner, friend or landlord), fleeing abuse, fleeing violence, overcrowding, loss of job with tied accommodation, loss of job and can not afford the rent, change in circumstances that have lead to the repossession of their home, leaving care, leaving prison and a mental health breakdown – this list is not conclusive. Homelessness is a multi faceted problem and often has links with other social and or health related problems. From experience we have learned that without safe, secure and affordable accommodation these other issues can be near impossible to address.
‘To Assist as many persons as is possible, within the given resources, who are faced with homelessness or threatened with homelessness’
- No person should have to sleep rough
- All persons should be treated with respect honesty and without prejudice
