We are looking to recruit for a Community Development Worker (Invest Local Penywaun). This is a key role to listen to and work with members of the Penywaun Invest Local Group and address what matters to them as outlined in the Invest Local Penywaun Driving Change Plan (the Plan).
Interlink is the County Voluntary Council (CVC) for Rhondda Cynon Taf, supporting individuals, communities and organisations to work together to make a positive impact on the life of people who live and work in Rhondda Cynon Taf and also in Merthyr Tydfil with Voluntary Action Merthyr Tydfil (VAMT).
We act as an umbrella body or ‘Hub’ to support over 550 members through helping plan and develop projects, activities and events as well as helping members plan and manage what they do. This is about using all the amazing skills and knowledge within communities to turn ideas into action and to make a difference. Our members come in all shapes and sizes, some are small community groups and others are larger charities, we love working with them all!
We believe stronger communities result from building on their existing assets and strengths, empowering individuals, communities and organisations to have an equal voice and to make a difference through community development. The better we understand, respect and value each other, the more we listen the better we will be able to and work together to make a difference, tackle poverty, improve wellbeing and reduce inequality.
