What We’re About

‘Our mission is to work with individuals and groups to identify and build on their strengths to enhance community well being through active participation, volunteering, engagement and empowerment.’

Who we are

Melin Community Trust (MCT) formerly Melincryddan Community Conference is volunteer led charity set-up in 2002 to foster Community Development and Regeneration work in the Neath Port Talbot area.

Volunteering is an essential element to our project work and we are proud to have worked with hundreds of volunteers over the last few years.

The skills and confidence gained through volunteering has led to a number of different employment outcomes for past volunteers including employment with the MCT itself.

What we do

MCT organises local projects such as May Day and Christmas events; we provide venues for advice provision, IT skills and adult literacy and we run sessions in various venues across Neath Port Talbot to help people become digitally included.

One of our latest projects is looking at help to relieve the problem of loneliness. Through our interactions with local people including our volunteers we seek to be led by local needs to provide needed services.

Where our focus lies

As our name suggests, we are passionate about the community we live in. However, we do not limit our work to the Melin area only. We strive to strengthen communities all across Neath Port Talbot.

We welcome any time and help you’re able to give. Get involved with our projects and help them exceed expectations! We respect your own personal commitments and will work around your schedule.
