CELEBRATE

Even through a difficult year, we still have so many things to celebrate at Llamau. From the launch of our colleague wellbeing helpline to hosting our first ever Stay Up challenge event, so much has happened to make a difficult year, an incredible one. We couldn't have done it without you.

Highlights from the Year

Domestic Abuse Training

As part of our ongoing work to become a financially sustainable organisation, we launched our Domestic Abuse Awareness training as a purchasable product. To date, we’ve delivered this training to 130 participants across corporate organisations and health and social care.

Colleague Wellbeing

During the initial stages of the pandemic, we were able to launch our colleague wellbeing support line, offering mental health and wellbeing support to all Llamau colleagues. To date, around 10% of our organisation have utilised this service for added support.

Psychology Helpline

Last year, we launched our Psychology Helpline for Llamau colleagues who need extra advice when supporting a young person or woman in crisis. This line has helped us share best practice across the organisation and ensured the people we are supporting have received the best quality help and advice.

Counselling Students

We are working with 10 brilliant Counselling students through our in-house counselling service, developing their talent by giving them important experience supporting people with mental health concerns.

BBC Panorama

Last year, we shared our work and stories from across Llamau through more than 60 pieces of media coverage across Wales and the UK. This included a feature length piece on domestic abuse during the pandemic by Victoria Derbyshire for BBC Panorama.

Bouygues UK

We’d like to say a big thank you to Bouygues UK for making Llamau the beneficiary of their St David's Day breakfast and for bravely taking on our Brace the Brecons challenge this year.

Stay Up Event

We held our very first STAY:UP event in October last year, which helped us raise essential funds during a very challenging year. We put on an eventful evening of stargazing, cooking and music to help participants stay awake all night and into the following day.

My First Job

This year, we launched the #MyFirstJob campaign, which reached more than 1million people across social media. Hundreds of people shared their very first job with us and the many life lessons it taught them; helping us raise awareness of how important employment is for young people.

Deloitte

We’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to our partners at Deloitte. Since April 2020, they have raised a phenomenal £16,660 for Llamau. Through joining our virtual events to organising their own, Deloitte have inspired us with their incredible support.

Corona Logic

Last year, Llamau benefitted from a fundraiser that raised more than £5,000 thanks to designer Jon Mlynarski and his Corona Logic project. Corona Logic is an album of Super Furry Animals covers by Welsh artists.

Laurence Brophy

Avid Llamau fundraiser, Laurence Brophy, took on a colossal challenge in aid of Llamau yet again. Last year, Laurence became a record breaker as he became the oldest man to cycle from Lands’ End to John o Groats and back again. THANK YOU LAURIE!

Paul Fosh Auctions

Paul Fosh auctions have continued to show us phenomenal support, taking on the Welsh Three Peaks and recently hosting a lunch in aid of Llamau. With match funding by our friends at Lloyds Bank they have raised an incredible 13k for us this year.

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to all the amazing funders we work with for generously granting Llamau the funds needed to continue to develop and deliver our work.
