We believe that we can tackle poverty and improve wellbeing by working together and harnessing the huge amount of knowledge and skills held by individuals, communities and organisations.
Interlink is a charity and is the County Voluntary Council for Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT), an ‘umbrella’ or ‘Hub’ organisation for community and voluntary groups, we have over 500 members.
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, listen and work together; the better we can make a difference, reduce inequality, tackle poverty and improve wellbeing.
Interlink’s main areas of work are:
· Community Advice and Support ‘providing information, advice, training and funding’
· Volunteering ‘supporting volunteers and volunteer organisations’
· Health, Social Care and Wellbeing – ‘supporting people and working together on early intervention and prevention to improve health, social care and wellbeing’
· Citizen, Community and Third Sector Voice ‘helping people communities and third sector organisations to influence and take action on those things that matter to them’
