Collaborative Communities 


A Vibrant Third Sector

Our region has a flourishing Third Sector which contributes to our vibrant communities. We aim to secure its future through an exiting programme of support to create sustainable organisations.

The project partners already provide excellent support and we aim to build on this to offer advice and guidance in new areas such as:

  • New skills to manage your organisation
  • Ways to move from grants to trading
  • Development of Social Enterprise*

* Social Enterprises trade in order to pursue a social benefit and reinvest profits back into delivering social objectives.

The County Councils and County Voluntary Councils in Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire and Swansea have formed a unique partnership to combine resources for the success of the project. The partnership draws together expertise and experience to share best practice across the region. The project will run until December 2013.
