Community Benefits Projects update - Wales and West Housing

Community Foundation Wales has supported Welsh Procurement Alliance to award grants to its members to enable them to respond to the needs of those within the communities in which they work.

All projects have identified a way to build local community cohesion, reduce the isolation of those that are vulnerable and improve the health and well-being of families struggling with the effects of living on low incomes.

Wales and West Housing have been consulting with the local community in Newcastle Emlyn to better understand how they can improve a local park to better suit the needs of local people. Funding will be used to engage them to come up with ideas and to then progress those ideas in practise, giving them ownership and pride in an area that will provide the space for improved health and well-being, socialising and will create a stronger community.
