Description

An A4 leaflet issued by Grangetown Community Concern titled 'What is Grangetown Community Concern?'. "Grangetown Community Concern was set up 17 years ago to act as an umbrella group for all other voluntary organisations in the area. It's aims and objectives are to provide services for all age groups, particularly the elderly. We are situated in the Day Centre where advice can be given or callers can be referred to other sources of help."
The leaflet then gives more details about:
· Meals on Legs (a meals delivery service)
· the Christmas Day Dinner for older people and those alone, and an Easter Monday morning coffee, lunch and afternoon bus trip for the elderly
· Grange Community News (a quarterly newspaper)
· the week-long Carnival
· Community cups awarded to a child from each of the four primary schools who has shown Community Spirit
As Grangetown Community Concern was established in 1977, this leaflet would be about 1994.

Grangetown Community Concern is a voluntary group, partly funded by Cardiff Council but almost entirely run by volunteers. It was established in 1977 and is a registered charity. The group was set up as an umbrella group for other voluntary organisations with its aims and objectives to provide and encourage services for all age groups, with a particular focus on older people.

The group organises the week-long Grangetown Festival in June. It also organised lunches and trips for older people, and produced a quarterly local newspaper. The organisation has awarded community cups to children from local primary schools who have shown community spirit and has also been responsible for arranging an annual carol service.

The group was renamed Grangetown Community Action in 2014.
