Share Cardiff – Connecting people, projects and places, for social good

All
Just a quick note to point out an excellent new resource for those interested in making Cardiff even better than it already is.

Share Cardiff is a network of grassroots community groups and projects in and around Cardiff that aim to make Cardiff a better, healthier, more connected and more social place to live.

We have created an online directory of Cardiff based grassroots groups, neighbourhood projects, local community groups, co-ops, social enterprises and other initiatives that are achieving social good and that share the values of the sharing movement.

The site has everything from swap groups and repair cafes to Credit Unions, open source projects and spare room networks. There’s also a healthy number of cycling groups on there too, including our friends at Cardiff Cycle City.

Check it out and, if you are involved in a project that you think should be on there, be sure to let them know.

What a brilliant, brilliant thing. There’s so much good happening in our fair city already, it just needed something to help pull it all together and give it a platform. Now we have one. Thank you, Share Cardiff.
