Description & History

The trust aims are to raise the quality of life for all, create opportunities for young people and create opportunities in health and sport as well as to help develop the local economy, particularly countryside access and tourism.

Formed in February 2000 Ynysybwl Regeneration Partnership became a development trust in 2003 in order to move proposed regeneration projects forward and develop income generating assets.
With a population of just under 5000 the community was built around the former Lady Windsor Colliery which closed in 1988 and led to a socio-economic decline in the community.

Location and Area of Benefit

Ynysybwl, Coed-y-Cwm and the forested area to the north of the village, in the Cynon Valley. Population now just under 5,000. The community was built around the former Lady Windsor Colliery which closed in 1988 and led to a socio-economic decline in the community.

Main services, Enterprises and Activities

The Trust’s main services and activities include an advice service, community newsletter, community finance and education, environment, developing the economy through tourism and countryside access, meeting room hire, property development, sports and recreation, training, transport and youth work.
