Here at Taff we believe that investing in our communities improves lives for our Customers. We do this in 3 distinct ways.
We organise a range of engagement events in the community, supporting existing community groups and venues in the heart of the communities in which we operate. We work closely with local community partners and youth groups to engage with children and young people. We organise activities during the school holidays to help reduce anti-social behaviour and develop a relationship with young people to raise aspirations. To find out more about what activities are coming up, click here.
As well as supporting existing community groups, we run a range of Customer Involvement groups at Taff, including special interest groups, equality groups and consultation groups that help shape the work of the association and help improve our services for all Customers.

Jobs and Training
With Welfare Reform gathering pace, we recognise that giving people the opportunity to train and volunteer so they can gain access to the jobs market is vitally important. We offer a comprehensive range of free (often accredited) training, working in partnership with local universities and training organisations.
We also run a supported volunteer project, providing a number of opportunities including work placements within Taff, placements with our community partners and ‘Share your Skills’ placements. Click on these links to find out more about our volunteering or jobs and training programme
