Part of our places programme, Amplify Cymru was launched in Port Talbot in South Wales bringing together communities from Aberystwyth, Connah’s Quay and Port Talbot. We worked with them to find out what they believe needs changing to transform these communities and linked up powerful innovative local projects, funders and advice givers to help them scale up what they do. This is our research storybook into what matters in these communities.
