Many would say that there are few things more important than having a roof over your head!
But, there are so many different housing options out there and, unfortunately, people can have lots of different housing issues and difficulties.
Fear not, as there is loads of help out there, if you’re ever in a sticky situation. If you’re 11-25 in Cardiff, hopefully the below will be a good starting point.

Cardiff Housing Options Service has a wide variety of information, from homelessness to benefits.
Cardiff Housing Service website really is the front door to information and advice on all the housing options available to you.
If you’re searching for the right place for face-to-face housing advice, queries and applications, then look no further than Cardiff’s Hubs and Housing Offices.
