Some of our work so far

I have worked with CYCA for the last nine years. The school that I run is in a severely deprived community with very complex issues relating to poverty, domestic violence, family breakdown and substance misuse. The children are subject to a myriad of complicated issues and are emotionally challenged. CYCA have provided training for my staff, workshops for the parents and are working directly with families in my school in the school day. They have been a god send in supporting our work. Previous services we used are no longer available for dealing with the growing mental health problems these children are experiencing. I feel having worked for eleven years in this community the relationship that I have developed with CYCA has enabled to make a significant difference to many lives.
The range of services and the interventions provided by CYCA will make our school a better place for the children of this community.

This funding means that children and families in one of the most deprived wards in Wales will receive essential well-being support. CYCA have outgrown their current premises. In order to be in a position to help more children and families a move is essential.
It is what it is at the moment we can not control the virus BUT WE CAN CONTROL the way we respond to it, humour is very useful Today focus on what our lives may
