Economic resilience

January 10th 2019

In January 2019, we began work on a project to build local economic resilience in the Heads of the Valleys.

Governments have been attempting to regenerate the area for many years, with limited success.  Now, challenges such as automation and Brexit are making the local economy even more fragile.

This innovative project aims to develop and oversee the implementation of a new approach to economic resilience, both in the Heads of the Valleys and across wider Wales, by bringing together UK experts and local economic actors and harnessing the lessons and experience from the new approaches currently emerging in other parts of the UK.

We are extremely grateful for the support of the following funders without which this project would not be possible: Friends Provident Foundation,  Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Hafod Housing Association, Cynon Taf Housing Association, Merthyr Valleys Homes and Tai Calon Community Housing.

We are still seeking financial contributions to enable us to complete this project so please contact us if you would like to discuss the opportunities.

Over the coming months, we’ll be releasing a series of short briefing papers and a project report so watch this space.
