Communities First Tredegar Cluster

This programme will continue until the end of March 2018 and is currently in a transition phase where activities are being phased out, with a focus on supporting people into employment, in line with the Welsh Government’s priorities related to employability in building resilient communities. From 1st July, Cluster staff will be delivering support to community members on a variety of levels to best position them to become more employable, which in some ways is merely a continuation of how they have been working over the last few years. The new way of working includes intensive support tailored to the needs of the individuals, helping them to acquire the skills and experience to gain and maintain sustainable employment. The support received by individuals will vary according to their individual needs but might include things such as work club support, access to employability related training and/or qualifications, improving transferrable skills, support in gaining experience through work experience or voluntary placements, help with accessing advice and support.

With grants of £100,000 to £500,000 to support applicants in piloting new, more effective ways of collaborating, the Great Place Scheme includes everything from city-wide initiatives to smaller, rural schemes.
