Community Legacy – Swansea

Community legacy

We’re delighted to announce that our next Community Legacy Project empty property renovation will be in Swansea during early 2021!

Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, our Community Legacy Project supports the regeneration of our communities, reducing empty property numbers and positively impacting upon the effects of anti-social behaviour, crime, and vandalism. In doing so, the projects support participants to learn new skills and develop a sense of community pride, providing a meaningful stepping-stone into employment or other positive aspirations.

Our next project will start in Swansea during February 2021 and will support people in the area aged 16+ from a range of backgrounds to improve their health and wellbeing, enhance their confidence and self-esteem, learn practical and employability skills, achieve accredited qualifications, and make positive life improvements through the renovation of an empty property in a local Swansea community.
