Action in Caerau and Ely, a charity based in Cardiff enjoyed a visit to the National Assembly for Wales, Cardiff Bay this week.

Action in Caerau and Ely is a charity and was created through the Ely and Caerau Communities First programme in 2011. Building on the long history of community development in the community it seeks to develop and deliver a range of different projects and activities to regenerate and improve the communities of Ely and Caerau. Their aim is to bring the community together, support community groups, manage and develop local projects and promote the needs of Ely and Caerau with the Council and other service providers.

They came for a tour of the Senedd to discover how they could get involved and get their voice heard.

Helena Jones who works for Action in Caerau said:

"Many people in our communities feel as if they don't have a voice and don't have a part to play in ensuing we all live in a safe and resilient community. We've come to the Assembly today to highlight the work of members and to ensure that the people of Caerau and Ely know how to engage and how to get their voice heard."

Marian Davies who attended the tour said:

"The tour was very enjoyable and informative. Who knew it was so easy to come and visit and to get involved with the work of the Assembly? I was very impressed!"

After the tour the group had a session with an outreach officer to learn more about the work of the Assembly and their role to play.
