Hello and welcome back to our newsletter!
It’s been a busy start to the new year for us at The Community Impact Initiative. We’ve completed work on our Pen y Cymoedd funded project in Clyne. Our participants have successfully passed their CITB CSCS tests and are having interviews for work, and we’re looking for new members to join our team.
|With work completed on our Pen Y Cymoedd funded project in Clyne, it’s time to turn our attention to our next project. From April onwards, we’ll be regenerating our next empty property in Glynneath. If you are 16+ and looking for an opportunity to learn new skills and gain qualifications, this could be the project for you. Not only will you learn new skills, you can also achieve the L3 Emergency First Aid in the Workplace qualification, CITB H&S Awareness training, and the CSCS card. This project is FREE to attend and open to anybody, so get in touch today via our contact page.|
|Not only do we invigorate our communities through positive engagement and skill development; we regenerate our physical communities by returning empty properties to the housing market. Take a look at some before and after photos of our latest Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund CIC community regeneration project in Clyne.|
|And just like that Scotts Department for Work and Pensions – DWP Kickstart placement has finished. He’s been with us for the past six months and we’ve learnt a lot about him. Scott is an incredibly motivated person and has been a great addition to the team. He has decided he would like to start a career in Groundwork, gardening or demolition, and we wish him the best for the future!|
