Youth Voice in Action has arrived in Fairwood.

VocalEyes have gained grant funding from the Community Foundation Wales to create a way for young people in the community to have their say on what facilities and amenities they want and need during our various stages of a "new normal" and beyond.

There is a whole topic dedicated to Ideas for Youth Voice in Action in the Fairwood community group where young people can suggest ideas and rate ones already added. The platform will prioritise the ideas based on the average rating and the number of people engaging with the idea.

We also hope that some young people will feel so empowered by this project they will sign up to become Community or Climate Action Influencers, spreading the word and helping take ideas into actions.

Conversation Cafe
Young People are interested in a wide range of topics. We could set up a Conversation Cafe for young people to have the opportunity to learn about different topics that interest them. For example Environmental or Political topics.

The young people would decide what they want to know more about and the Cafes would be attended by an expert in the area who would be able to answer questions and have a lively discussion in a relaxed environment.

Improved road signage on Gower commons
The dilapidated and missing signage at the entrances to the Gower commons needs to be replaced urgently!
The existing signage was funded and installed by the Gower Commons initiative in circa 1998 and are now badly in need of replacement.
New signs will warn drivers of free roaming livestock and Animals crossing the roads.
They will beed to be placed near each Cattlegrid on Fairwood, Pengwern and Cefn Bryn where possible.
Hopefully this will raise awareness of the animals, slow traffic and reduce animal deaths.
There have been 9 animal deaths since the beginning of December 2019 already!
Please vote for this initiative and help make the Gower roads safer for everyone.

Actif Woods Swansea
Actif Woods Wales (AWW) is a programme of Small Woods Association (known in Wales as Coed Lleol), a national charity supporting better management of woodlands for people and the environment. AWW has been running woodland activities for health & wellbeing in a number of locations across Wales since 2010. Our approach is one of partnership, working closely with local delivery partners from the environmental sector, and with the health sector and other social care organisations to ensure that people most at need are referred to our programmes. Our programmes include a system of monitoring and evaluation, and participants have shown clear improvements to health and wellbeing of participants in all programmes.

This project will work in partnership with the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, and Swansea and Neath Port Talbot Forest School. We will deliver woodland activities for health and wellbeing, and volunteer training courses at a number of sites within the rural wards of Swansea, with expected outcomes:
1. Improved management of greenspace sites for biodiversity and amenity value
2. Greater community cohesion and participation through volunteering and gaining new skills
3. Improved health and wellbeing of members of the community with poor health and sedentary lifestyles
4. Improved skills of volunteers, participants and activity leaders

Swansea NPT Forest School will lead on programmes of activities for families with young children, which will focus on physical activity, group engagement in games and skill learning, with an additional focus on nutrition and healthy eating taught mainly through campfire cooking and food foraging.
Wildlife Trust will lead on provision of Agored certified training courses for volunteers, in partnership with Coed Lleol who are registered as an Agored training centre.
