The ‘Our Neighbourhood Project’ focusses on the strengths that exist in local areas to create engaged and well-connected communities placing people at the heart of health and wellbeing.

Llwchwr cluster logoFunded by the West Glamorgan ‘Our Neighbourhood Approach’ Regional Partnership, this project covers the GP Health Cluster areas of Llwchwr and Cwmtawe.

Cwmtawe Cluster logo June 2019The project brings people together as a collective to share their skills to develop and grow grassroots projects, activities and schemes that will enrich their lives and the lives of other residents.

The project is also undertaking asset mapping within the local area, identifying support groups, local services, green spaces, and more.

Using local knowledge alongside other already known local information will help to create a snapshot of the strengths of the community, and allow the project to build on existing resources with the involvement of local citizens.

Live in the Cwmtawe of Llwchwr area? Here’s how you can get involved…

Become a ‘What’s on locally’ Volunteer:

In this role (suitable for those aged 14 +) you can help the “Our Neighbourhood’ project discover all that is on offer in the Cwmtawe and Llwchwr areas, helping to create an asset map of the area!

This is a flexible & short-term opportunity that can be anything from a couple hours as a one-off (micro-volunteering) or longer, and which you could do digitally from your own home, or out in the local community – the choice is yours.

Co-producing projects or services with ‘Our Neighbourhood’:

We know that it’s people’s skills, interests and ‘lived experience’ which creates strong community resources, so the ‘Our Neighbourhood Project’ focusses on linking with people to develop and grow local groups and activities to enhance the lives of community members.

We have no age restriction for involvement, and would love to work with a wide variety of people and groups. This could include schools, social groups, peer support groups, hobby groups, supported housing projects and more.

What you can expect from us:

  • Professional Support from the Our Neighbourhood Development worker, to help grow your idea or project,
  • Access to a variety of training,
  • Opportunity to be involved in the design, development and delivery of new groups or services that will benefit the local community.
