CC Launch 2016

On 27th September, Perthyn celebrated the official opening of its Community Connections Service at Y Pwynt in Llanelli.

Perthyn believes everybody can and should have the right to meaningful activity within the community. Community Connections helps people to learn and develop skills to become more independent. By helping people access opportunities in their local communities they can develop friendships and gain respect from others. This in turn can increase confidence and people end the day satisfied having achieved something.

Y Pwynt is an ideal base for the co-ordination of Community Connections. It has office space to accommodate a team of managers as well as training and meeting facilities. To aid the skill development opportunities for the people we support, we have an accessible kitchen with high & low level surfaces, as well as IT resources and Inclusive Communication equipment. It is also a resource that local clubs, associations and businesses within the community can use.
