Community Benefits – Tai Tarian
Brynhyfryd House – A place to share (£10,000 awarded)
Brynhyfryd House is a community hub developed for the people of Neath Port Talbot, a warm friendly base where you can access services under one roof.
In the last year the hub has set up a food donation service for the wider community. This has become very successful and the demand is growing. The room that is currently being used is not fit for purpose. It requires a full make over, wall units and base units to store the food, worktops, new nonslip floor, plastering, painting, create a grocery store, stacking shelves, electric points for fridges and freezers.
This will hugely benefit the wider community. The aim to help reduce food poverty in the area, bring people into the building and whilst visiting they will see other activities, services and opportunities they can access, such as volunteering, training, employment support and charity shop.
Canolfan Maerdy (£10,000 awarded)
Canolfan Maerdy is an organisation for the upper Amman Valley and one of our most deprived rural areas. It provides a multifunction community hub, meeting the needs of the community as part of a collaborative effort to regenerate local economy. The services they provide under one roof include: Lots of tots nursery, Youth Club, Community Café, Food Hub, Community Transport and facilities to deliver adult learning courses. This funding will cover materials, non-voluntary expenditure, fruit trees, compost bins, plants and seeds for the hub.
