WREXHAM club goers can be assured of a safe place to go should they run into any issues thanks to the Hafan y Dref welfare centre.

The Centre is one of several initiatives in Wrexham city centre to assist anyone who needs help during a night out and they are supported by door staff, police officers, street pastors and of course family and friends.

Cllr Paul Roberts, lead member for partnerships and community safety, said: “Hafan y Dref is a fantastic facility there to help everyone who might need a helping hand whilst enjoying an evening out.

“It has a proven record of reducing pressures on the emergency services and of providing immediate assistance to anyone needing help. They don’t pre-judge anyone they’re there to help and prevent unnecessary distress or harm.”

Hafan y Dref was first opened in December 2015 with the aim of providing a safe space for people who have become vulnerable due to consuming too much alcohol or taking drugs so they can receive medical attention and support through a combination of medical assessment, supervised recovery, and discharge.
