Cardiff Half Marathon

Four homelessness charities in Wales have come together to encourage participants to support their common cause and sign up for the 2023 Principality Building Society Cardiff Half Marathon.

Shelter Cymru, Crisis, Llamau and The Wallich have joined forces to put a spotlight on the impact they have, both individually and collectively, on supporting people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Wales.

Shelter Cymru is a Welsh charity that exists to defend the right to a safe place to call ‘home’.

Last year, we helped 18,000 people (including almost 6,000 dependent children) who were affected by the housing emergency across Wales. We campaign to defend the right to a safe and secure home, as well as fighting the devastating impact of the housing emergency on people and society. We never give up.

For every child with homework, but no home.

For every parent struggling to pay their mortgage or rent.

For every pensioner living with damp and mould.

For every person kicked out for coming out.

Home is everything. Help us protect it.

Join our team.

Crisis is the national charity for people facing homelessness across Wales, Scotland and England. We know that homelessness is not inevitable and that together, we can end it. We provide services directly to people experiencing homelessness at our Skylight centres (including our centre in Swansea), carry out research into the causes and consequences of homelessness, and campaign for the changes needed to end it.

At Llamau, we’re on a mission to end homelessness. Llamau supports women, children and young people experiencing homelessness in Wales. We believe that having a safe place to sleep is a right, not a privilege. We aim to prevent homelessness through early intervention and prevention, by providing safe accommodation to those who are faced with the frightening reality and we give support to move on to leave homelessness behind. No young person or woman ever has to be homeless.

Join Team Llamau today.

The Wallich is a Welsh homelessness and rough sleeping charity which operates under three core objectives: Getting people off the streets, keeping people off the streets and creating opportunities for people. Running more than 100 diverse projects, across 18 local authorities, The Wallich works with more than 7,000 people every year across Wales.
