Building Livelihoods Project locations
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 in Ebbw Vale by our project with The Wallich who also address drug and alcohol dependency issues.
In Cardiff, we worked with South Riverside Community Development Centre to help Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women and men boost their employability and quality of life.
In Swansea, the project worked with refugee and asylum-seeking adults to improve their skills, confidence and social networks with partner 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 at risk of homelessness, many of whom live in bedsits and find work hard to come by. Our partner was Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council.
In Wrexham we worked with Caia Park Partnership to support vulnerable and hard-to-reach residents on a housing estate to improve their lives.
