• SWALEC keeping the Community at Heart

  • Volunteers with the finished sensory garden 

    One year on from the launch of our ‘Community at Heart’ initiative, we’re celebrating the news that our employees have spent a total of 4,000 days working on 320 charity and community projects. 

    Many local community based projects across south Wales have benefited from our staff lending their hands, minds, ideas and skills to make a positive difference to others as part of our volunteering scheme.

    We’re getting involved in all kinds of projects, from painting the local scout hut to clearing out the village duck pond, crushing boxes or crunching numbers. Whatever it is, SWALEC staff are ready to take up the challenge, taking time out of their day jobs to lend support to local people, charities and organisations that need help.

    One of the successful 320 projects saw staff from our Cardiff Gate headquarters carry out extensive refurbishment of the garden area at Craig-y-Parc School in Pentyrch. 75 volunteers gave the sensory garden, the flower beds and the vegetable patch a makeover and made them accessible to the school's 56 disabled children. 

    Head of Customer Services, Gareth Wood, said, “Our staff have supported worthwhile environmental and social projects that they feel passionate about in the areas that they live and work. It is really important to SWALEC that we get involved with projects on a local level, and we have already taken on a lot of challenges, from gardening and clean up operations to more strategic tasks.  Our team are a talented bunch so we have the skills to help with most tasks.”
