COVID-19 and post pandemic

During COVID-19 we assisted our local community of Merthyr Tydfil, assisting people with free food parcels, home shopping and prescription collections . Alongside this we also ran an extensive educational and training programme for children and young people.

 

Thank you to all our volunteers and staff for putting their hard earned time into helping us support the community.

FOOD PARCELS

During the pandemic we delivered thousands of free food parcels to vulnerable and shielding people throughout the whole Borough of Merthyr Tydfil during 2020/21. 

YOUNG PEOPLES RESOURCES

The young people of Merthyr Tydfil helped us over the pandemic to design and distribute thousands of welfare and creative packs to help the children of Merthyr Tydfil Borough.

Post Pandemic

The charity adapted to life post Covid and needs of the community.

What we are now delivering:​

  • Wellbeing centre at the Dowlais Community Centre for those suffering from isolation, low wellbeing, confidence and lack of socialisation. We deliver music therapy, menopausal sessions, yoga etc

  • We have a food bank and cooking classes in the outdoor hub that was supported by Feeding Britain, as during Covid we identified that over 60% of the client base could not cook properly.

  • We work in partnership across the community delivering dept advice with Citizens Advice and Tydfil Training as well as sessions with MIND.

  • Dowlais OAP group are now based at the centre which supports socialisation and helps end isolation.

It is a people led approach, the charity listens and reacts to what the community needs.
