Community development

As part of our commitment to our communities, we have a team of Community Development Coordinators. They work with communities to develop projects in our neighbourhoods and to support communities to get together and organise events and projects for themselves.  

We also have a Financial and Digital inclusion coordinator who specifically supports you to be more financially resilient and to get online.

We often hold roadshows and events in communities, so keep an eye out on social media for more information. The team have been involved in a number of projects including:

  • Investing in our community centres to make them vibrant hubs for the community:
    • Rhydwen Drive, ‘Phoenix Centre’, Rhyl
