Llamau A step in the right direction

Llamau supports young people and vulnerable women facing homelessness, who may have experienced poverty, abuse, and discrimination, and have significant health and educational needs. We are a registered charity, providing specialist support to encourage stable independent living throughout ten local authorities in South Wales. The pre-vocational training part of Llamau is known as Learning 4 Life. 

Learning 4 life offers learning opportunities to young people aged 16 – 25 in a friendly and supportive setting. We think it is really important that young people can follow a programme that suits their needs. We offer flexible sessions that are designed to help improve confidence and self-esteem. We focus on improving employability skills so that young people gain confidence to take the next step towards employment.
