Three community-based groups making a real difference in Blaenau Gwent have each been awarded £4,000 thanks to tenants at Tai Calon Community Housing. They were granted the money after applying to the Community Improvement Fund.
Swffryd Community Centre is using the cash to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. Home Start Blaenau Gwent is helping parents through volunteering, while, RTB Ebbw Vale Bowls Club will, almost other things, be spending it on new kit and equipment.
Natalie Egan, Community Involvement Worker at Tai Calon, said: “To give the people of Blaenau Gwent something back and support local groups is fantastic. Tai Calon prides itself on being community-spirited and we are delighted to have been able to help.”
Applications for the Community Improvement Fund are decided by tenants. Up to £4,000 can be awarded for projects that benefit the local community and up to £1,000 for one off events.
Applications for this year are now closed. It you would like to be considered in 2016 please contact the Communities team on 0300 303 1717.
