Community Resilience


Making a difference to your community

Funded by the Transformation Fund, our Community Resilience Officer works with Bridgend County Borough’s community groups and individuals to identify what they feel would make a positive difference to their local area by supporting them develop new initiatives and activities.

Community Resilience

Pre-lockdown we helped a number of individuals set up various groups throughout the county borough to come together to combat loneliness and isolation of older people including a ‘Chatter and Natter’ friendship group in Kenfig Hill and a Sunday lunch bunch in Cefn Glas.

If you have any ideas that would improve where you live and need support to get it off the ground, please get in touch!

Contact us

We can support you to access relevant training, funding, link you in with other community groups, assist in identifying strengths and assets of the community and help develop community engagement and consultation events.

If you want to play a more active role within your community and become a community ambassador, contact Tracy at BAVO, T: 01656 810400 or E:
