This project has created accessible community growing spaces on previously disused and badly overgrown land. The land is owned by Onllwyn Community Council and leased to DOVE Workshop. The project has built raised beds, constructed paths and erected large poly tunnels. There are 23 families using the raised beds and one of the poly tunnels to grow fresh produce, the other poly tunnel is used for horticulture and woodwork sessions with participants and volunteers.
If you are interested in finding out about any of the above projects, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Due to funding, the Livelihoods project will finish at the end of March.
There is still support available at Dove Workshop, please contact us for information regarding how we may be able to help you.
We’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with the project especially the participants.
We’re pleased to say that Mark will be running woodwork sessions on Tuesday & Wednesday for the foreseeable future.

Cwm-Ni Iach – Healthy Company is a project funded by Big Lottery’s People and Places grant. The overarching aim of the project is to support people to improve their mental and physical health and well-being.
The need for the project came from discussion and consultation with community members, and is based on experiences of dealing with family members who have or are dealing with low to medium levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
We have a team of three workers, Lianne Byrne, project development worker, Kate Faulkner, advice and guidance worker and a part time administrator. The team will work with groups and individuals to develop activities and work with specialist organisations to support individuals to improve their lives.
The partners on the project are: DOVE Workshop, Lead organisation; Glynneath Training Centre and Ystradgynlais MIND. If you or someone you know would like to join the project please contact us. October – December Walk & Talk itinerary
