South Denbighshire Community Partnership (SDCP) supported by Citizens Advice Denbighshire (CAD) has been awarded a grant of £349,847 over a four-year period by the Big Lottery Fund.
The cash will enable the partnership and Citizens Advice Denbighshire to work together with the communities of Corwen, Carrog, Glyndyfrdwy, Llandrillo, Cynwyd, Melin y Wig, Betws Gwerfil Goch and Bryneglwys to reduce isolation, improve wellbeing and increase resilience primarily for older people and those unable to access services.
Michael McNamara, Chair of Trustees of SDCP, said: "Although the grant has been awarded to the
organisation, the benefit is for the whole Edeyrnion community. I would like to compliment the team from for their hard work in extensive consultation and community engagement which has enabled them to submit a comprehensive operational plan.”
Rona Aldrich, Chair of Rural programme funding decision committee, said: “This fund will help our rural communities to address those poverty related issues which they themselves have identified as important and going forward we are looking forward to seeing how they use the funding to build
their confidence and experience.”
