Bonymaen Family Cwtch first opened its doors in spring 1999. The centre was originally situated in Cefn Hengoed Community School; in November 2010 the centre was temporarily re-located, after an unsettled few years we are now based in the old vicarage at 122 Mansel Road in the heart of Bonymaen. From the outset the centre has been well attended. We aim to make easily accessible opportunities for children and young people and their families to change their lives for the better. We work in partnership with a number of agencies in Swansea to ensure that a complete package of opportunities and support is on offer.
All of our staff are fully qualified and have a wide range of experiences working with children and families. We have a dedicated team who are committed to providing the community and our families with an invaluable service.
We try to offer a programme of activities which appeal to all members of the family and brings the community together. We aim to target those that lack motivation, ambition and self-worth and develop a positive attitude by providing ways of increasing skills, developing confidence and self-esteem and motivating individuals to make positive choices aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty, raising aspirations and supporting children, young people and adults to reach their potential.
