Our Approach:

To achieve the aims of the Trust, we are committed to:

We will be honest and transparent in our approach and authentic in how we do things. We will do what we say we will do.

Local support
We are committed to the neighbourhoods of Maesteg and surrounding areas and will respond to resident needs in this area.

We believe every individual is an important part of our neighbourhood and should be able to contribute in a way that is meaningful for them.

We always treat people equally and are committed to reducing inequalities that exist within our community and organisation.

We try new ways of working and experiment to find the best way of doing things. We want to use our assets to maximum social benefit for the local community.
