I will be working with eight different rural communities across Swansea: Gower, Mawr, Pontardulais,Bishopston, Pennard, Fairwood, Llangyfelach and Penclawdd. I'll be recruiting, training and supporting a Community Organising Team (COT) in each ward. Each team will be made up of volunteers from the community with a passion for improving the place they live in and a drive to make positive change. What will the Community Organising Teams be doing? The COTs will help local people to debate and rate existing ideas for the ward and make suggestions of their own.
This engagement is primarily online but where appropriate, face-to-face and larger meetings will also take place. As more people engage with the process (and the more the better!), the most popular ideas will float to the top; then it gets really interesting! The ideas with the most support will be progressed into action with the assistance of the COTs. They will arrange projects for local people to pledge their support to online, and at meetings.
Where required, they will present results to groups or individuals for extra support to ensure the ideas become reality. The outcome of this process will be better connected communities, able to work together to improve their lives for themselves and ultimately more facilities and activities for the ward. I'm really pleased and proud to be a part of this project and I'm looking forward to helping people make a positive change. Keep checking in for progress updates - the journey starts in Pennard!

The facility to use your debit/credit card in the
canteen and snack cafe has now been implemented.
During a Class Representative Meeting held at the Gorseinon Campus at the start of the year, students were given the chance to speak directly to Management from a variety of areas regarding the issues that had been raised within their tutorial classes by their peers. The main focus was the need for a debit/credit card facility to pay for refreshments at the Canteen and Snack Bar. Following the meeting, a very high level of requests and comments were posted on VocalEyes through the single sign in on Moodle.
Thanks to all the students who actively became members of VocalEyes to push this idea forward, the Management Team have provided this facility. Staff and students now have the option to use their debit/credit card to buy refreshments in the Canteen and Snack Bar at Gorseinon and the Canteen in Tycoch.
