helping people with every day house hold items we take for granted to enable them to live as they should and bringing communities together xxx How we started: boomerang Cardiff initially started back in August 2012, before a name had even been thought of, Paul Gwilym, founder of boomerang Cardiff had a conversation with two homeless people one evening, it was at this moment Paul Gwilym’ s mind went into overdrive thinking of ways he could help. For the next few years Paul invested time and effort into helping the people that live on the streets of Cardiff, roping in other volunteers and meeting new people along the way. The desire to press on in providing basic essentials to those in need continued, so much so 2016 was the time to expand. Through all the hard work, commitment and perseverance, Paul finally managed to secure keys to an industrial unit in the Splott area of the city, this is when things started to turn, and boomerang Cardiff now had a base. From a conversation with the homeless people of Cardiff, to helping sending out blankets and spare clothes, to sending out hot drinks and meals, the times finally turned, not for Boomerang itself, but for the endless list of ways in which they could help. boomerang Cardiff now had an established Centre, to some just an empty unit, but to the boomerang team, a home, a place where we are able to stock supplies, prepare food, and bring the community together Who are we?
