Cornelly Development Trust is a community based, regeneration organisation, working in a village where livelihoods had been dependent upon traditional patterns of industrial employment; a village that has faced and continues to endure major change. CADDT was created in 2005 by local people as a way of responding to social and economic deprivation within the area, and those issues are still as relevant today as they were at the start.
The organisation is registered as a company limited by guarantee 05505171 and a registered charity 1158680
The Trust helps local residents access training, volunteering, work experience and employment opportunities as well as offering other community activities. Originally based in Heol Llan, then at the Yellow Building in Gibbons Way, and now in its new home at 45/47 Heol Fach, we have been an integral part of the village but many people still don’t know who we are or what we do.

Sadly, the pandemic meant that we had to remain closed and cancel much of this during the last year, but we still ensured that weekly food parcels were delivered to the community from our “Pantry” and offered online support to residents with CV writing, jobsearch and other issues.
Details of the various activities and services we offer are here on the website, and it is our hope that we can be back up to full capacity by the beginning of 2022, bringing additional services, activities and events to the village.
Cornelly Development Trust receives no government or local authority funding, so we generate our own income through trading and fundraising. The money raised is used to fund our operational costs and any surplus is then reinvested in community events or allows us to offer low cost or no- cost activities.So your support is really appreciated!
