What our clients say about us…
“Having the specialist support provided by the BRO Partnership through the Create Your Space (National Lottery Community Fund) programme has really helped me in my role with the Cwlwm Seiriol project. As well as providing feedback on schemes and playing the role of a critical friend, they have offered advice on how to engage with stakeholders and facilitate groups, which has been extremely useful.”
