New van to deliver food to Homeless

A special van has been bought by a homeless charity in Wrexham to deliver food and blankets to people living rough in the town.

The van has come from money donated to CAIS and Shelter Cymru - the two charities that run the homeless project in Wrexham.


This project, based at 65 King Street, Wrexham, has been running since 2001 and is a Welsh Assembly Government funded partnership between North Wales drug & alcohol agency, CAIS, and Shelter Cymru.

It also offers support and advice to young people through drop-in sessions, on issues such as accommodation, substance misuse, training and employment, and independent living skills, and partly owes its success to a team of committed volunteers.

Tracey Jones will be in charge of sending the van out to help the homeless says:

'It kind of knocks down a barrier for them in not having to come and knock on a door asking for help. If they know our faces then they know who we are, we can possibly be of assistance to them without them having to come and search for us.'
