South Cluster Communities First is a Welsh Government Programme aimed at tackling poverty in our most deprived areas. The Communities First team works in the South of Merthyr Tydfil covering Plymouth (Troedyrhiw, Pentrebach & Abercanaid) Merthyr Vale (Merthyr Vale & Aberfan), Treharris and Bedlinog (Bedlinog & Trelewis) wards.

The programme supports the most disadvantaged people living in our most deprived areas with the aim of alleviating persistent poverty.

The Communities First delivery team, funded by the Welsh Government, will work with residents, community organisations, business and other key agencies in these areas, and will focus on actions leading to the long term sustainability and wellbeing of communities. Involving local people in all aspects of this work is an essential feature of the programme.
