Economic resilience

January 10th 2019

In November 2018 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 your ongoing support and that of the following funders, without which this project would not be possible: Friends Provident Foundation with 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.

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