The Care Society manage Emergency Accommodation units throughout Ceredigion on behalf of Ceredigion County Council and have done since 2005. Service users are assured of a safe, secure and settled environment. People accessing the service are referred by the Local Authority. This would generally be after satisfying priority status or where priority status is under investigation. They may also be referred under a statutory power. Our Emergency Accommodation units are found in Aberystwyth and Cardigan.
