CD - Digartref

CD moved into Llys Y Gwynt following the breakdown of her initial tenancy after leaving Foster care. CD had accrued a notable amount of housing debt, was struggling with poor mental health and the upkeep of the accommodation. 

CD positively engaged with support and gained an improved sense of wellbeing by attending workshops and support sessions to develop tenancy focused skills, receive budgeting guidance, develop life skills and build networks by attending internal and external group activities organised by Llys Y Gwynt. CD’s mental health improved through regular contact with CMHT and the nurturing and empowering support received from the staff at the project.  

In recognition of CD’s personal growth, the opportunity to take up a tenancy in Y Gilfach was provided. The new tenancy continued to support CD’s development and growing sense of self worth. X’s participation in workshops, The Learn4Life project, internal and external activities, also proved to have a positive and motivating impact on fellow residents. 

CD also became an Ambassador for the charity Action For Children and travelled the country to advocate and raise awareness of youth homelessness. 

After expressing a wish to attend University, CD was supported to consider a variety of courses and centres, attending open days in both Aberystwyth and Cardiff University before opting to study in Cardiff. CD received support to access financial aid, choose suitable accommodation and to plan for a successful placement. CD attended Cardiff University for a year but unfortunately due to declining Mental Health, once again required support and reached out to the Llys Y Gwynt Project. CD received a placement in the Y Gilfach properties. 

Whilst residing in Y GIilfach, once again CD attended a broad spectrum of workshops and activities facilitated by Llys Y Gwynt. CD consistently attended support sessions and re-engaged with CMHT and MIND, all of which nurtured the return of a healthy sense of wellbeing. CD thrived in the environment and was provided with the opportunity to reside in the Felin Wen cluster property to promote an enhanced sense of independence and to enable another step towards the ultimate goal of independent living. 

CD received support to set up utilities, wifi and to budget for living costs, to apply for white goods via DAF and request financial aid from social services to receive a TV.  After approximately 4 months, staff noted that CD appeared to be struggling with her Mental Health, which was evident through the return of hoarding behaviours and the condition of the property. 

CD returned to Llys Y Gwynt supported accommodation of her own volition and once again received support to address poor Mental Health. CD enthusiastically engaged in a broad spectrum of activities to continue developing skills, boost self esteem and strengthen social networks.  

When CD felt ready to move forward on her journey towards independence, support was provided to apply for a council tenancy. CD was successful in gaining a tenancy and received support via the Holyhead Floating Support project until it became clear the support was no longer required. 

CD has stayed in touch and is continuing to thrive; sustaining a tenancy and gaining employment.
