Melin Community Trust functions as a community hub. We are based in Melin Advice Centre – a building that brings many essential services into the area, including Welfare Rights and Citizens Advice.
Beyond providing local residents a route to outside services, MCT also offers its own services and groups. These include our Friendship Group and various Digital Inclusion sessions across Neath Port Talbot.
MCT is launching Melin’s very own Repair Café!
The Repair Café offers an opportunity to bring the community together.
It provides a service for both the local community and the environment. People are encouraged to bring in items for repair rather than them ending up in landfill!
We currently have volunteers to help with electrical, antique, and textile repairs.
But…we are looking for volunteers with expertise in bicycle repairs and also for front of house volunteers. The latter will interact with members of the community and make them feel welcome to the Repair Café – the friendly face of waste reduction and community resilience.
