Ategi pleased to be supporting people at Tŷ Cornel to live their best lives

Ategi is delighted to share that from 16th February, we will be providing support to people living at Tŷ Cornel in Cardiff. 

Tŷ Cornel is a supported accommodation service especially for who have a history of homelessness, alongside other support needs such as substance misuse and complex health and social support needs.

Coping with homelessness and substance misuse is tough, and the people we support are usually resilient people with considerable strengths who have survived adversity. Tŷ Cornel provides a safe and supported home as people adjust to increased safety, they are supported to identify and prioritise their goals across different areas of their lives.

We work with each person to support them channel their strengths, and identify additional resources in the community and other organisations, which can assist them in taking steps towards their goals. These are varied and can include; improving their physical and mental health, managing substance misuse, getting involved in the community, developing positive friendships and relationships, engaging in hobbies, learning, volunteering or work, and developing skills for independent living such as shopping, cooking, cleaning and gardening. Each person has their own private en-suite room – for some people this is a first for quite some time. The home also provides ample communal area for people to socialise, engage in hobbies and activities, prepare and eat food and grow plants in the garden.    

We are very pleased to be working with this group of people and the other organisations who are involved in supporting them.   

We’re looking for people to join our skilled and friendly support team. This team work with people at Tŷ Cornel, but also across our other support services.  We value our team, offer good rates of pay and provide a range of other perks.
