Ty Gwyn Project
Integrated service for children
and young adults with complex needs
This project improved an existing building (formerly known as Trelai Youth Centre) and created five classrooms for Ty Gwyn School, part of the Western Learning Federation in West Cardiff.
The service will provide an enhanced multi-agency workspace and deliver out of school and holiday activities.
Comments from people who use the service
“Having all these professionals at the school has made a huge difference to us. Because my daughter knows them, she is also more relaxed. They are brilliant in helping her with what she needs.”
“By making better use of resources and moving away from traditional ways of delivering services, the Integrated Care Fund is making health and care services more person-centred and closer to home.”

We want every child in Cardiff and Vale to have the opportunity to thrive. Our work focuses on children in vulnerable situations and the services that support them.
We know how hard it can be to find help when people need it the most. We want to make sure there is community support to help people stay as healthy as possible so they can carry on doing the things that matter most to them.
As a Partnership we have worked together with people with a learning disability, their families, carers and the third and independent sector to produce a clear direction for the planning and delivery of adult learning disability services across the region over the next five years.
