WELCOME

Well you must be pretty amazing! Somehow here you are … one the One South Wales page while it’s in the making. This is such an exciting time for us and we’re very glad to share it with you!

Whether you’ve been specially invited by the One South Wales team or you’ve simply stumbled upon us, your presence here is something really special … it has purpose … it brings collective opportunity. If you’d like to play a part in the build of this community hub, here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Read about us to get a better idea of what we hope to achieve here, with you.
  • Get our blog pages off the ground by sharing your thoughts, tips, local news or whatever you feel like putting out there.
  • If you’re looking for advice about anything or would like to start a discussion, use our forum. Don’t worry that there aren’t many people using it yet, your post will be shared on Facebook and Twitter and we’ll happily join in ourselves.
  • Add a photo to our gallery.
  • Let us know if there’s something you think should be included on here. This site is community led and we value your input!
  • If you think a local shop, small business, charity or cause would benefit from using our free blog pages please tell them about us.
  • Let your friends know about us, as a non-profit organisation you’d be really helping us get out there. 

Thank you,

Louisa Mills, Editor

These blog pages bring together ideas & experiences from a diverse mix of people from across our communities of South Wales. Teachers, therapists, charities and unions are just some examples of our authors ... but you never know, you might just find a blog from your next door neighbour!
