Adref is a registered charity and limited company devoted to eradicating homelessness in the South Wales Valleys.
They work with approximately 800 people each year throughout the Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf areas.
Since 1990, they have managed a range of support services that help people develop skills that avoid them becoming homeless. In addition, accommodation for people that do not have housing.
Adref promote independence by helping their users develop skills that will help them secure employment so that they do not need to rely on benefits.
This is done through the Adref Charity Shop, which is run as a social enterprise in Pontypridd, and our Aspire project.
Today (1st June) – the start of Volunteers Week 2016, Adref moved to a new premises opposite the old Marks and Spencer in Pontypridd.
Jamie Pritchard spoke to Paul Maunder, who’s been co-ordinating the shop move to find out even more about Adref and how it’s all gone
