Caerphilly Churches Night Shelter (CCNS)

Caerphilly night shelter logoThe Welsh Government has committed to a plan to move away from a reliance on the voluntary sector for the provision of accommodation for the homeless, and that includes night shelter. This means that we can be cautiously optimistic that 2020 was the last year that the night shelter would run at Mount Pleasant, as Welsh councils now have a duty to provide more suitable accommodation. 

Therefore, although we are on standby for 2021 just in case, we hope that you will join us to pray that our services will not be needed, and also to pray that all homeless people still currently in temporary accommodation in Caerphilly due to the Covid-19 pandemic will find more permanent, stable homes soon.
