How this cause brings people in the community together
Every step is important, right from the light-bulb moment, and we need your help to keep on supporting our communities and the people in them to be the best they possibly can be. We push the boundaries of the imagination to create innovative and thought-provoking projects focused on heritage, media and volunteering. Engaging with the most disadvantaged and beyond, we encourage, enable and inspire people, bringing out the best in them and their communities. Your support will enable us to develop new ideas with our volunteers to create projects that inspire communities across Cardiff. Any amount you give could go towards part of this process, whether it’s £5 for an initial coffee meeting or £5,000 for a heritage project celebrating local people, every step is a vital part of what we do.
