Thank you to those who were able to join the conversation last night. (07.10.21) The initial response was very positive and supports our intention to work in a community asset-based manner. Empowering the community of Llandeilo to focus on ‘what would improve their life’ with a positivity that encourages a solution focused drive abound with creativity.

Time frames and processes often help guide and support with planning and so I have prepared this information as a starting point; changes may be required to reflect community need.

Funds available: £10k – potential funds available £20k+

Need to highlight that this project is not just about creating new or requesting huge amounts of £ /it could be working with existing projects to be used in different ways with nominal funding required

‘Community is at the heart of every action taken’.
