Family Housing is currently working with SPICE – to deliver a time credit scheme in Ammanford. It means that tenants can give an hour of their time in helping someone else and earn one credit. The credit can be spent at a lot of places. This is a great way to foster community relations whilst at the same time helping each other.
Gwyn i Wyrdd is part of the Social Care, Health & Housing Department of Carmarthenshire County Council. The project is part of a training facility for adults with disabilities and individuals that are economically inactive seeking work experience and training.
