Seven houses, each different in style, all designed to feel like home.

Houses at Elidyr Communities Trust

We have seven houses, Ty Pickwick, Ty Rhieni, Ty Barnabas, Gardevias, Nant Gwyn, Gwernpwll and Ty lori, each one with a house manager. Every house has its own kitchen, office, laundry room and choice of communal areas.

Most have a large kitchen dining area with adjoining living space which helps large groups to socialise together. Young people are encouraged and helped to do laundry, cooking and cleaning.

Six of our houses incorporate independent flats that are used to support our young people in further developing the life skills for their post-college lives.

We’ve had two new houses built recently and maintain a rolling programme of refurbishment and redecoration across the site.

Our houses are run as warm, supportive households where young people can be themselves. We eat, socialise and undertake household chores together, sharing experiences and making decisions on household matters including menus and leisure activities.

After spending our first Parents Day with Owen ... it was a joyous day spent with confident, happy young people, who clearly were enjoying learning and living in a fantastic environment.
