The Wallich is a homelessness charity delivering innovative housing and support services to homeless and vulnerably housed people. The Organisation formed in 1978 in Cardiff and now supports around 8000 people a year across Wales. Our work falls into four principal areas:

1. Residential supported housing projects, including direct access hostels, emergency night shelters and accommodation for people with specific issues such as substance misuse, youth services etc.
2. Floating (Tenancy) support projects in which we support people who have tenancy difficulties, sometimes with a contributing health or other need, and are in danger of losing their homes.
3. Prevention or intervention projects supplied through Homelessness Prevention Grant funding which are a broad range of services that prevent homelessness or make life better for homeless people.
4. Participation and Progression services, which are embedded in all our projects enhancing support through providing opportunities for Service Users to take an active part in their community. These services include those designed to enable people to move into meaningful activities including employment and training opportunities.
The Wallich’s values are of empowerment and treating people with dignity, respect and an unconditional positive regard. The principles of our work are based around solution focused working, harm reduction, and the creation of an environment where the people we support are actively and meaningfully encouraged to be involved in their support, and the development and delivery of services.
Project Description
The Rough Sleeper Intervention Team project operates across Wrexham working with rough sleepers providing basic humanitarian aid in the community, with the aim of engaging vulnerable individuals in support services and signposting to relevant support. The project is funded through a charitable foundation.
Purpose of Role
To coordinate and provide support that enables and empowers Service Users to address housing and/or personal difficulties, build their skills and confidence, and ultimately improve their ability to access and maintain accommodation.

Volunteering – Town Centre Ambassadors – Ongoing

Volunteering - Town Centre Ambassadors

Town Centre Ambassadors project

town-centre-amabassadors

These are extremely challenging times for many independent retailers, in Wrexham and elsewhere. We need to raise awareness of just how much our town still has to offer – both on event days and others. Even after thirty plus years trading in the town centre we still sometimes get someone turn up in our shop who says “Gosh, I’ve lived in this area for ten years and I never knew this lovely shop was here!”

Another frustration is that when we do have an event in the town, its often hard for people in (say) Eagles Meadow or Island Green shopping centres, to realise that there is anything extra going on that might tempt them to explore a little further. And sometimes even people who have come into town for that event, go away disappointed because they have not realised just where various things are happening! We know this is true because of the comments we receive on social media.

Social media can only do so much; what we need are friendly people on the spot, roving through the different areas welcoming people with a big smile, helping them to find what they need (library, toilets, a particular shop, or whatever.) And armed with maps, flyers, heritage trail leaflets, and so on – to make sure people remember their visit to Wrexham town centre with pleasure and want to repeat it soon.

Martin and I decided to kick start the project in November from our own business funds, with a two-pronged effort – a flyer on Independent Wrexham, and a first batch of tabards to be worn by our volunteers. An appeal on the Wrexham Town Matters Facebook group quickly produced our first volunteer Ambassadors, and six people so far have ventured out in the tabards on some of the Saturdays before Christmas. We all received a largely positive reception as we distributed copies of the flyer, the Snowflake Trail entry form and the WCBC Christmas booklets.

AVOW has posted this volunteer opportunity on the “Volunteer Wales” database which should help us gain extra support. (Link: http://www.volunteering-wales.net/opportunity/29990/)

Joe Bickerton of the WCBC Tourism team is hoping to design some online training for us. And I have secured permission for the Ambassadors to operate within Eagles Meadow, hopefully I will do so for Island Green as well shortly. Various places in town have supplies of tabards, leaflets etc so you can grab them and put an odd hour in if and when you have the time!

I believe this is a great way to build community spirit, and make sure all those coming to our town centre – both residents and tourists – have a really great time. There’s no need to commit to a set number of hours or regular days – if everyone does a little when they can, it will all add up! You can make a difference, have a laugh and make new friends at the same time.

To get involved, either contact me, Ruth Rees, via Facebook Messenger, or email admin@wrexhambusinessgroup.co.uk – or drop in our shop, Martin Rees Jewellers in Chester Street – or you can follow the link above on the Volunteer Wales website.
