Places and activities for young people and children

Grangetown has one of the youngest populations in Cardiff so it was no surprise to hear that local residents would like to see more provision for young people in Grangetown all year round.

Grangetown residents have suggested the following ideas to create more activities for young people. We're advertising the following projects throughout the University so we can work alongside residents to start turning these ideas into action. Watch this space for updates on project progress and new collaborations.
