Signposting and Crisis Response

Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan

Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan support Cardiff Council’s Independent Living Service and the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Contact 1 Vale. Both services exemplify the benefits that a single point of access to an array of partner-provided services can have for local citizens.

Ty Illtyd’s ground floor will see an expansion of the activities on offer for residents, a nursery and a new base for the GVS.  

The first floor will have a sensory room which will be used by local children with disabilities on one day of the week by the Sunshine Club. On other days it will be available for the school’s use and outside groups.  Office space will be available for hire by self-employed lone workers, third sector organisations needing a base or health professionals needing a space to practice. The rentals from workspaces will provide valuable income generation for the Third Sector.

An older building, CF61 is currently being used as a vaccination centre by the local GP Practice. Until June 2019 it was the venue for a variety of community activities hosted by commercial and third sector providers.

Our Priorities


We want every child in Cardiff and Vale to have the opportunity to thrive. Our work focuses on children in vulnerable situations and the services that support them.


We know how hard it can be to find help when people need it the most. We want to make sure there is community support to help people stay as healthy as possible so they can carry on doing the things that matter most to them.


As a Partnership we have worked together with people with a learning disability, their families, carers and the third and independent sector to produce a clear direction for the planning and delivery of adult learning disability services across the region over the next five years.
