Helpful organisations

Llais y Goedwig – the support group for Welsh community woodlands and one we are closely involved with.

Environment Wales – without their support and grants our woodland wouldn’t look half as good, but unfortunately this organisation is shortly to be dissolved.

Torfaen Voluntary Alliance – they have always been generous to us

Keep Wales Tidy  – they are always helpful with litter picking and grant support

Space Saviours – community based organisation that helps people to ‘turn an empty space into a great space’. Funded our roundhouse project.
