Our core team

We aim to develop meaningful and long-term relationships with local communities, enabling the sharing of community and university expertise to achieve common goals.

The pilot project has focused on Grangetown – one of the most culturally diverse and largest electoral districts in Cardiff.

Community Gateway is hoping to play a pivotal role in making Grangetown an even better place to live by supporting community projects and offering world-class University research, teaching and volunteering opportunities which respond to local needs.
