Create and Connect
In January 2019, SPAN embarked upon Create and Connect, a volunteer project funded by Enhancing Pembrokeshire.
Enhancing Pembrokeshire is a fund generated by Pembrokeshire’s Second Home Tax, enabling SPAN to widen the reach of its existing volunteer outreach programme into new areas heavily affected by second home ownership.
At the time of the project, 45% of SPAN’s volunteers were:
- living with a mental health condition
- aged over 65
- living alone
Create and Connect created more opportunities for volunteers to get involved in the arts through interesting volunteering experiences and helped people to contribute to the regeneration and enrichment of life in their communities.
