Securing Success: AnTir Carmarthenshire Project

Written by Tir Coed / Tuesday 20 February 2024

Tir Coed are delighted to announce their recent success in securing funding to deliver the AnTir Carmarthenshire Project in 2023/24.

The AnTir Carmarthenshire Project has received £171,968 from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, supported by Carmarthenshire County Council. This project will enable Tir Coed to deliver woodland, nature-based, food growing and heritage skills courses, taster sessions and volunteering opportunities across Carmarthenshire.

The provision will offer people work-specific skills, accredited learning and experience relevant for green jobs, and includes one-to-one mentoring, advice and guidance, supporting person-centred progression towards greater economic and community engagement.

The practical work undertaken during the AnTir Carmarthenshire Project will serve to enhance both community spaces and biodiversity for the benefit of all.

Operations Director Cath Seymour says: “This is fantastic news for the future of Tir Coed in Carmarthenshire. It means that we can continue to support disadvantaged people, offer more targeted training for those who aspire to progress into outdoor jobs or volunteering, and improve community spaces for the collective wellbeing of all. It means that we can contribute our small part in responding to key challenges faced by the people of Carmarthenshire, while helping local communities become more resilient.”
