Cae Dai Trust
The Cae Dai Trust provides support and opportunities for adults who are homeless, have spent time in Prison, have or are experiencing difficulties with drug and alcohol addiction or are experiencing mental health difficulties. We also support adults who have additional needs and live in residential care.
The Cae Dai Trust is a small charity based in Denbigh; a small market town in the beautiful hills of the Vale of Clwyd. After the closure of North Wales’s largest psychiatric hospital the Cae Dai Trust was established to provide support for adults who have difficulties with drugs, alcohol, depression and mental illness. Cae Dai is able to give limited temporary accommodation; which provides the “umbrella” of support required to enable the beneficiary’s time to gain confidence, self esteem and life skills essential to moving on and living independently in the community. The Trust works closely with other external organisations and adopts a multi-agency approach regarding the support of vulnerable adults.
We are currently supporting 19 beneficiaries, 3 live at the trust, 2 live in local residential care and the others live independently within the local community.
By the time people are referred to Cae Dai they have lost virtually everything, their homes, families jobs and of course their self esteem. Usual they have been homeless and forced to sleep rough due to lack of space in the night shelter. Their addictions and or dependencies have made it impossible to function independently in the community.
The Cae Dai Trust provides an idyllic location for people to begin their steps to a fresh start. Its beautiful surroundings give peace and quiet whilst the 1950's museum, woodland community orchard and farm provide a sense of purpose and work experience. Cae Dai gives people an opportunity to rebuild their lives in a safe, caring non judgemental environment. We encourage people to take one day at a time and slowly embrace the future.
Our project is unique to the area therefore are service is in high demand. We are confident that once the museum is complete and we are once again receiving a regular income, we will be in a position to offer support to even more people, who desperately need our help.
I’m sure if you Visit the Cae Dai Trust you will agree that is truly a unique and wonderful place.
Cae Dai Trust aims to:
- We provide a safe haven for vulnerable people, a place where people belong. At Cae Dai we encourage others to be accepting of each other and ensure people feel safe and welcome in a non judgemental environment.
- We aim to provide opportunities for the most vulnerable people in society. Our farm, woodland, community orchard and 1950s museum, provides ample opportunities for people to gain work experience, slowly regain their confidence and learn new skills. We provide work experience and volunteering opportunities for people who may find it difficult to find opportunities elsewhere.
- We support all our beneficiaries with appointments with outside agencies and ensure that they are able to access the support they need and liaise without side services. We try to break down any barriers to ensure people can access any external support that they might need.
