Shw’mae! I’m Dafydd, and I’m the Project Co-ordinator for SVC’s projects based up in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT). This currently includes Social Club (RCT), Club Night (RCT), Befriending (RCT), Digital Mentors, and the Police Volunteering Project (Northern). I also help co-ordinate Fantastic 4 Party Planners with my colleague Kumba.
I studied English Language at Cardiff University from 2012 – 2015, and during that time I started volunteering with SVC as a Lead Volunteer on a school literacy project. I then sat on the Board of Trustees as an Events Officer and an Associate Trustee, before taking a few years out to try various jobs – from bookshops to museums, street food to TEFL teaching – so it’s a wonderful opportunity to now be involved again as a member of staff!
SVC is a friendly and welcoming gateway to getting involved with your local community, and a fantastic chance to meet people from all walks of life. If you’re interested in any of our projects, feel free to get in touch by email or phone, or call by the office to say hello!
