‘Raising young people’s awareness of housing matters’ has been piloted with young people across Wales and delivered by members of Shelter Cymru’s Education Advisory Group.

EAG members have worked with schools, PRUs and supported accommodation providers as part of the pilot of the project however, it is available to everyone in Wales.

The unit is available on the Agored Cymru website. Shelter Cymru are working in partnership with the WEA YMCA community college as the approved centre to deliver this unit and workbooks and teaching packs are available directly from Shelter Cymru’s Education Officer: education@sheltercymru.org.uk
