The images show articles of a Community Audit Questionnaire. On 15 September 1998, Grangetown Community Concern received a Community Audit Questionnaire from City and Council of Cardiff, as part of the Butetown and Grangetown Regeneration project. The covering letter (also in the archive) explained that community groups, individual community activists and voluntary organisations based in Grangetown and Butetown were asked to complete the questionnaire. The purpose of the questionnaire and audit was to:
- undertake a mapping exercise, identifying voluntary organisations and community groups operating within the strategy area;
- identify training, development, support and funding needed for these groups; and
- encourage/facilitate effective networking and skills/resource sharing.
The questionnaire was completed by Christine Davies who was a part-time paid employee at Grangetown Community Concern. Everyone else in the organisation was an unpaid volunteer.

The first page states that Grangetown Community Concern worked mainly with older people and the young. It received £1900 funding from Cardiff Council, had a management committee, a constitution and was a registered charity. It had 25 members and "approx. 20 volunteers".

The second page states, "The Concern was set up in 1977 as an umbrella organisation to help various groups in Grangetown. We run a newspaper 4 times a year, a Festival Week, Carol Service for the Junior Schools, Christmas Dinner for Elderly, Easter Day Meal and a Meal Run 5 days a week."
Asked how the organisation would develop over the next 3-5 years, the reply was "Involving more people in the Community, expanding our services". The organisation required training in publicity and marketing.

On the third page the organisation stated it wanted to join the Regeneration Forum.

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 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.
