Community regeneration and development
Our vision for Wales calls for strong, safe communities that people will want to live in now and in the future.
Wales has a strong tradition of community identity and self-help. We want to enhance this identity by giving people the confidence to develop local solutions to community problems and by providing them with the funding and support to do so.
We are committed to tackling social disadvantage, cutting poverty and helping to improve the lives of people who live in the poorest areas of Wales. Communities First is a Wales wide programme that is paving the way for community regeneration. The work is concentrated in and around the most deprived areas of Wales to promote economic, social, and environmental improvements.
Problems of deprivation in Wales are concentrated in poorer inner city areas, parts of the South Wales Valleys, and in coastal towns and ports. By clearly identifying these areas we are able to target resources where they are most needed.
The aim is to support both individuals and communities to address the barriers to things getting better. Our commitments focus on tackling the issues that can most damage day to day life for people and on supporting work in local communities.
