The Welsh Government’s consultation on the future of its Communities First anti-poverty programme ends on Sunday, and we need as many people as possible to have their say.
Faith in Families’ three Swansea centres – in Bonymaen, Clase and Penplas – rely on Communities First for 79% of their funding, and without it the charity wouldn’t be able to carry out such vital work.
Faith in Families CEO Cherrie Bija said: “Faith in Families is reassured that the sharp closing of our family centres is not imminent after hearing our funing would continue until June.
“However, it is vital that we continue hearing your stories of the impact our family centres have had on our communities, sharing with Welsh Government the transformational changes that have been achieved in people’s lives, holding onto our values that ‘People Matter’.
“We need to continue engaging with the Minister as he evaluates the Communities First Programme and designs the way forward.”
