Community RePaint is excited to welcome two new schemes to the network. One is based in Cornelly and the other in Ystradgynlais.

Cornelly & District Development Trust and Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre,Β are now a part of the Community RePaint network. Both community organisations are dedicated to helping those in need within their communities.

Community RePaint Cornelly and Ystradgynlais

Community RePaint Cornelly, located near Bridgend, is run by Cornelly & District Development Trust, a community regeneration charity that works with local people to improve community facilities and activities. They help volunteers gain valuable experience while benefiting the wider community with the work that they do. They also provide access to training, volunteering, work experience and employment opportunities.Β  The scheme opened at the beginning of August and is excited to be a part of the Community RePaint Network.

Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre, located north of Swansea, is run by Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre, which aims to improve the well-being of people in Ystradgynlais and neighbouring communities. They do this by operating a furniture reuse project, a food bank, and an outreach service. They are also involved in recruiting, placing and supporting volunteers, matching their skills to clients’ needs.

Ystradgynlais is very involved in reducing waste and promoting environmental activity and awareness. Now, apart from the Community RePaint Network, they will be able to stop usable paint from going to waste and redistribute it back into their community.

Both of them have paint available to individuals and groups at an affordable price.Β  To pick up paint from either of the schemes, you simply need to pop in and visit them during their opening hours. We would recommend calling in advance if making long journeys, as the amount of paint available will fluctuate throughout the year.
