​New Housing Advice Centre in Ebbw Vale

A new Housing Advice Centre on Church Street, Ebbw Vale was officially opened by Blaenau Gwent Mayor Councillor Barrie Sutton on Wednesday, 1st February.

The centre, which is run in partnership with Tai Calon Community Housing, United Welsh, Linc Cymru, Melin Homes and Hafan Cymru, is a one-stop shop for housing advice and offers a range of facilities to people living in Blaenau GwentThe advice centre which is in a key location in the heart of Ebbw Vale town centre, had been empty for more than 15 years but has been brought back to life thanks to a significant programme of refurbishment.

An investment of more than £400,000 including money from the Welsh European Funding Office and the housing associations involved in the project, has seen the complete transformation of the building.

Joe Logan Chief Executive at Tai Calon said: We are delighted to have been involved in this important project for the benefit of the community of Blaenau Gwent. This is a great example of how much can be achieved by working in partnership, to make limited resources go even further

Councillor Haydn Trollope, Executive Member for Environment for Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council, said “We had identified there was a need for a facility to provide housing advice in Blaenau Gwent and so are delighted with this fantastic refurbishment. A partnership approach is really important to us as it recognises the role all organisations play in meeting housing need and demand so we are very pleased that all the housing associations we work with can base themselves here as well.”
