Our projects

We will invest in projects which have the potential to develop strong, lasting partnerships between local residents and University staff, students or academics.

Community Gateway is investing £90,000 over the next two years to fund partnerships between members of Cardiff University and Grangetown residents. All partnerships we fund will work towards making Grangetown an even better place to live.

The projects will benefit a range of communities in the area, as well as contributing to University ambitions. As residents, and experts of Grangetown, we're following your lead; below are all the project ideas from local people who want to work with the University to take action.
