Third Sector Award - WVCA 2015

Penparcau Community Forum is a community based organisation which actively engages its community to develop sustainable and inclusive activities and facilities for the benefit of all. Penparcau, the village, is primarily made up of a large housing estate on the outskirts of Aberystwyth which consists of approximately 1,200 households with over 3,200 residents including 800 children and young people. A recent survey indicates that 39.5% of those 800 young people live in poverty.When the area was no longer eligible for support from Communities First (the Welsh Government programme for tackling poverty) the residents formed Penparcau CommunityForum to promote and facilitate long-term sustainable community development and activities. The Forum aims to create a vibrant inclusive community where people can feel safe and proud to be living or working within the village, and to bring individuals, groups and organisations together to determine the long-term needs of Penparcau.
