What is Cyfle Cymru?

Cyfle Cymru is a peer mentoring project that has been supporting people in the Western Bay area since September 2016. Our peer mentors help people to develop confidence, offer volunteering opportunities and provide support to access training, qualifications and work experience.

We help people affected by substance misuse and/or mental health conditions to gain the skills necessary to enter the world of work.

How can WE help YOU?

Peer Mentor support

Our peer mentors offer one-to-one support and reflect on their own experience of substance misuse, recovery, and/or mental health conditions. They understand what you are going through and can support you when you face new experiences or challenges.

Employment Specialist support and opportunities

  • CV building and access to qualifications and training
  • Volunteering opportunities, offering you a chance to give something back to your community
  • Real-life work experience
  • One to one guidance and help to search and apply for jobs
  • Ongoing support after you enter work, training or education to help you settle in and gain confidence during this period.

Who is eligible?

  • Are aged 16 to 24 and not in employment, education or training
  • You are aged 25 or over and long-term unemployed or economically inactive
