Community projects

We all need to connect with others, and to feel part of the world around us. Our community projects give people the chance to come together, learn new skills and hobbies and enjoy spending time with each other – whatever their confidence level.


Community Garden

We work with Taraggan, a community organic gardening project based in Bargoed. Taraggan brings people of all backgrounds together, helping them to learn allotment and gardening skills, grow great organic produce, and connect with nature. The produce grown is then sold to the local community at good prices, so the gardener’s good work goes further.

Taraggan always welcomes donations of scrap wood, seeds and soil. If you would like to get involved with the project, or make a donation, please get in touch:


Walk and Talk

Our Gwent Out of Work Service and Big Dog Coffee run a monthly ‘Walk and Talk’ the first Tuesday of every month.

The walk is a great way to connect with others, improve your mental health and wellbeing, and enjoy great coffee!

We set off at 12pm from Woodlands, Pengam NP12 3SY and encourage everyone to walk at their own pace. After the walk, free tea and coffee is provided.
