Caewern Community Association in Neath Port Talbot received £3,400 to run a variety of weekly activities for their community. The activities have a particular focus on residents facing financial hardship, experiencing lasting effects of the pandemic and people isolated or suffering with their physical or mental health. Food is provided at each session. Louisa M. a participant, explained why she attends:

“These sessions have made a huge difference for people young and old in this community. Without them, people have shared with me how isolated and lonely they can feel. I personally have attended sessions with my son and grandson, and it’s given us the opportunity to do things and experience things we would never usually be able to.”
