Services

Hafal provides a variety of services across Wales, including:

Activities for Service Users and Carers:

A range of activities – recreational, educational and social – for both clients and carers.

Housing Support:

Hafal’s outreach tenancy and floating housing support provides flexible assistance to people with serious mental illness, enabling them to maintain their tenancies. We also provide 24-Hour High Dependency Housing – dedicated, higher-need accommodation where staff is available around the clock to give support to tenants.

Resource Centres:

Hafal provides venues for various activities where people can also access information via the Internet and other means.

Drop-in Centres:

We operate a number of drop-in centres, which are locally-run and less formal venues for arranged activity and support. Many Centres offer Lunch Clubs and Weekend Clubs.

Employment Training:

A number of Hafal projects are designed to enable people to prepare for the world of work. Clients get supported employment training, and experience a work situation without being exposed to the stresses and strains that the workplace can often hold.

Befriending:

To relieve isolation and build social contacts, our trained volunteers work alongside clients to use community facilities.

Arts projects:

Hafal’s Arts Projects use all forms of art to aid social inclusion and development of self-worth.

Inpatient Advocacy:

This involves working with female inpatients as individuals and in a group on a variety of relevant areas.

Family Support and Advocacy:

We work closely with carers and family members, helping them support an individual with a serious mental health illness in the most appropriate and effective way possible, largely by providing them with the best advice and information, and access to neutral support.

Carers Respite Service:

This service engages a person being cared for in an activity of their choice, enabling their carer to take a break.
