Cornelly Development Trust

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 beginning.


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 offerin

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 since 2005 but since a lot of our work

is done in a confidential and sensitive manner, many people still don’t know who we are or what we do.


We work in partnership with statutory bodies such as Welsh Government, Local Authority, Cornelly Community Council,

South Wales Police, DWP etc...  and with other third sector organisations and community groups across Bridgend,

as well as the wider public and private businesses.


We offer:


Training          Volunteering          Work Experience      Employability Support


Craft Groups          Confidence building          Health & Wellbeing Groups         Community Bus Trips


Community Events         Social Activities         Community Repaint Scheme          Community Shop


Food Pantry          Printing, Copying and Photos         Business Printing Services        


Upcycling          "Bring It Don't Fling It" (Cornelly Repair Cafe)      Signposting, Information and Advice


And so much more........




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!
