Supporting People

Supporting People

Putting a roof over a person’s head may solve an immediate problem, but people who become homeless tend to have very complex issues. We aim to provide the support and the help that is needed too, so that homelessness is prevented in the long term. We are also available to continuing providing support when people are rehoused. 

Pembrokeshire is a large rural area and this can make it challenging to ensure our services can be accessed by all, so we provide: 

○ Home support visits

○ Outreach advice surgeries 

○ A travel warrant scheme – Covers the cost of public transport to our offices

Over the last twelve months we have provided support to over 2,000 people – Yes, over 2,000 and this gives an idea of the scale of the problem. 

We also try to help in other ways and have provided over 150 crisis packs in the last year too. This will include items such as food, bedding, furniture and crockery.  

We work very closely with our partners and funders and rely to a great extent on the support and funding of Pembrokeshire County Council and Welsh Government in particular. 

The support can also include short term pod accommodation – See this recent news article 

Impact of Covid-19

The present pandemic has given PCS many challenges, but with the support and enthusiasm of the staff we have been able to continue providing our services, primarily by telephone
