Living independently in Neath Port Talbot

Sleeping rough? +

If you’re already sleeping rough, it’s important that you contact the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) at Neath Port Talbot Council so that they know you need accommodation and support.

Can’t stay at home anymore? +

Sometimes young people can no longer stay in their family home. This might be because of difficulties with relationships, or it might not be safe for them to continue living at home.

In Wales, if you’re at risk of becoming homeless in the next 56 days (around two months), your local authority has a duty to find you alternative accommodation, especially if it’s not safe for you to stay at home.

If you’re having problems with your relationships at home, Llamau’s Family Mediation service could be an option:
