A handwritten A4 list of publications, with their cost, presented to the Grangetown Community Concern Officers Meeting on 7 March 1986, for them to consider purchasing.

The list includes the Disability Rights Handbook, maps, a dictionary, Whitakers Almanac, directories, books on media, printing and fund-raising, and journals on volunteering.

The items have hand-written ticks or crosses against them. It appears it was agreed to obtain:
· Collins map of Cardiff;
· 'Know How' by Grainne Morby;
· 'On Line 85' - “information handbook for young people. Council for Wales of Voluntary Services – Penarth. Free”;
· a monthly journal 'Network Wales WCVA' ; and
· a bus timetable

This list was found attached to the minutes of a Meeting of Grangetown Community Concern Officers held at Clydach Street Day Centre, Grangetown, on Friday 7 March 1986. The minutes of the meeting state, “decided to purchase a few from list supplied”.

Grainne Morby’s book 'Know How to find out your rights' was a guide to rights literature and legal information and covered housing, employment, health, social security, community action, education, campaigns and unions.

The Council for Wales of Voluntary Youth Services (CWVYS) is the representative body for the voluntary youth sector in Wales. It is an independent charitable body that promotes quality youth work and represents the interests of its membership and the wider sector.

WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) was set up in 1934 to help people during the Depression of the 1930s. It organised activities at more than 200 clubs and centres for unemployed people, funded district nurses, supported libraries in the valleys and helped create co-operative schemes to dig mountain coal. Today, it works with thousands of organisations in communities across Wales and employs over 100 people at their offices in Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Rhyl. In the 1970s it was invested in to support and train unemployed young people. In the 1980s, it launched its magazine 'Network Wales', began administering the Volunteering in Wales Fund and launched training and funding advice services for the sector.

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.
