About us

Communities First is a Welsh Assembly Government flagship programme to improve the living conditions and prospects for people in the most disadvantaged communities across Wales. Communities First Aberystwyth and Penparcau supports local people to help their own community. We work with the local Communities First Partnership to help bring about sustainable development and to tackle social disadvantage. Our services to individuals and local organisations include advice on funding, setting up and developing a community or voluntary group, as well as signposting wider contacts and opportunities.
