Communities First Trust Fund Award

G2G Communities CIC has been awarded funding by the Communities First Trust Fund and is using this money to stimulate community engagement and encourage people back into the workplace by:

  • developing social, interpersonal and essential skills by encouraging participants to organise ‘road shows’ using the South West Rhyl Communities First ‘Information Bus’;
  • increasing the level of self-confidence and motivation using practical environmental projects and new technology;
  • developing new technological skills that will benefit the local community and help participants looking for employment or hoping to start their own business;
  • get people back into work by undertaking projects as volunteers within their local community;
  • raise awareness of the local community to the assets available to them in West Rhyl;
  • increase the number of volunteers from ‘jobless families’ in West Rhyl and move them toward employment;
  • increase environmental awareness by producing multimedia marketing and learning materials that can be used with local groups, organisations, Schools, Tourist Information, Further and adult education;
  • stimulating new projects, or enhancing existing projects in West Rhyl.

Moira Lockitt CEO said: ‘We will achieve the above objectives using a wide range of technology and software to develop interactive multimedia resources, marketing and other promotional materials targeted on four environmental projects already established in West Rhyl and working in partnership with a range of local people and organisations. G2G Communities CIC has already organised and run four very successful free day training activities using the equipment and resources purchased as part of the award and over 30 peole have already benefited from this project. This project will have significant benefit to the participants and also to the wider community.’
