Creative Rural Communities

Supporting enterprise and creativity in the rural Vale since 2004. 

Creative Rural Communities (CRC) has been active in the Vale of Glamorgan for over 15 years. They have worked alongside local communities, voluntary groups and enterprises to trial and develop ideas for the benefit of the rural Vale OF Glamorgan. For most of that time, they have been funded from the Rural Development Fund for Wales - which uses EU LEADER funding to support rural communities.
