Where we work
The Building Livelihoods and Strengthening Communities in Wales Project
took place in the following nine locations across Wales between 2012 and 2016:
In Glyncoch near Pontypridd we worked with parents of children at two local schools. Our partner is Glyncoch Community Regeneration Ltd.
In Peblig near Caernarfon, our partners were Sylfaen. This project worked with young unemployed people on a large housing estate.
Homeless or vulnerably housed people were offered support by our project with The Wallich in Ebbw Vale. The Wallich also addresses drug and alcohol dependency issues.
In Cardiff, we supported young refugees and asylum seekers in partnership with the Prince's Trust and Oasis.
We also worked with South Riverside Community Development Centre in Cardiff to help black and minority ethnic (BME) women and men boost their employability and quality of life.
In Swansea, we worked with BME people to improve their skills and employability. We work with the African Community Centre.
In Banwen in the Upper Dulais Valley we worked with Dove Workshop to boost the life chances of long-term unemployed people.
In Newport, families with children in school were supported by our partnership with Duffryn Community Link
In Rhyl, our project was aimed at older people in the town, many of whom live in bedsits and find work hard to come by. Our partner here is Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council.
In Wrexham we worked with the Caia Park Partnership to support vulnerable and hard-to- reach residents on a housing estate to improve their lives.
