About Us

Who we are

Cyfle I Dyfu / Chance to Grow is a not-for-profit social enterprise, a social firm to be precise, you can find out what that means here.  We support and work with marginalised people, for example; 

  • A history of substance misuse
  • Learning disabilities / difficulties
  • Mental health problems

 

What we do

Our programme focuses on building practical skills that help people develop more positive routines, and sustain their development and / or recovery.  We provide real-life workplace experience, structure, routine, and social interaction & integration. Service users also have the chance to complete OCN qualifications as well as learn basic carpentry skills. In addition to this, employment and voluntary opportunities are explored and supported. One to one emotional support is also available during which they can discuss any problems or barriers which may prevent future access to employment.
