Housing for 16-24 year olds at Ty Cyfle

Ty Cyfle is a building with eight one-bedroom starter homes for tenants aged 16-24. This type of accommodation with support is new for young people in Torfaen. It is run by our Own 2 Feet Living service.

Support from Own 2 Feet Living

It’s a condition of living in Ty Cyfle that tenants must be in education, employment, training or volunteering. New tenants must have the motivation or aspiration to get involved in one or more of these activities.

The staff in our Own 2 Feet Living service give support for up to two years by which time a tenant will be ready to move on.

Each flat has the essentials to help tenants run a home for the first time. This includes a cooker, washing machine, bed, sofa, plates, cutlery, toaster and kettle.

 

Learning and training

The ground floor of Ty Cyfle includes an area for training and learning opportunities. This ‘Community Connection Hub’ will be used by Bron Afon and other partners to help tenants and the local community.
