Communities First

Communities First is an Assembly Government programme. Its purpose is to provide a more prosperous future for some of the poorest areas in Wales. The programme aims to do this by supporting people in the local community to work in a partnership with public agencies and the business sector. Through working together they can find the best possible answers to the problems facing people living in these communities.

The local partnerships plan their work around six headings:
• Jobs and Business
• Education and Training
• The Environment
• Health and Welfare
• Active Community
• Crime and Community Safety

As well as these headings, child poverty is an extra heading which must be included in finding answers to problems in all of the areas included in the programme. This means that children and young people are central to the work in each of the areas.

There are three areas in Gwynedd included in the Communities First programme. Here are the contact details for the local partnerships:
If you live, work or go to school in any of these areas you can get in touch with the local partnership to ask for information or to share ideas.
