Re-Advertisement - Development Manager, Noddfa Community Centre.

Noddfa Community Centre is a dynamic charitable organisation, managed by residents on behalf of the community. It provides a safe space where people, of all ages, can access learning, socialise and receive support.


We are keen to extend opportunities by enhancing provision, which reflect community requirements/needs. Excellent community dialogue is key to achieving this aim, so we must ensure that we develop further opportunities to reach people, across the whole spectrum of life. It is vital that we find a capable, vibrant, pro-active Development Manager who communicates effectively, understands our community, can clearly articulate its aims and aspirations and can translate these into effective, meaningful activity within the centre, thereby maximising its success. The Development Manager will play a key role in ensuring the smooth day to day running of Noddfa Community Centre. They will also be responsible for developing the business, including improving facilities and identifying new opportunities by means of effective marketing, income maximisation, networking, innovative solutions, successfully accessing appropriate grant funding. Working closely with the Trustees and staff, local statutory, voluntary and commercial sector organisations, the Manager will work to ensure the Centre is a vibrant, well-managed facility that operates within a sustainable framework for the benefit of local residents and organisations. The Manager will be given a high degree of autonomy and will be self-motivated. The Board of Trustees, as line manager, will support and mentor the new Manager to aid them in achieving their full potential within the role.

Particular experience and skills we are looking for include:

• Experience of managing staff and buildings.

• A history of successfully securing grants and other forms of funding.

• Sound experience of project management

• Excellent interpersonal skills, with an open, inclusive and encouraging approach

• Able to demonstrate high standards of both service delivery and building management.

Noddfa Centre Closure

Hello everyone,
As you know, we have tried opening the Centre gradually and for the smaller groups, to enable appropriate distancing and other Covid 19 restriction requirements to be met.
Although Wales has been through a further period of full lockdown, we are now advised that more of our friends and family in Glyncorrwg are now suffering from the virus, and it is with regret that we have come to the decision to close the Centre down completely, again (and for the immediate future), to protect all of our members as far as possible.
When we are in a position to change this and reopen the Centre we will let you know.
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
Wishing you all the best,
Noddfa Committee.

Covid 19 - 2nd Wave, 2nd Lockdown

Hello Everyone,
You may have seen that Noddfa has been opening slowly with small groups, and that we were looking to reinstate our Coffee Mornings in a socially distanced way.
Unfortunately, with the decision by the Welsh Assembly to put Wales into national lockdown again means that we are having to put those plans on hold and close the Centre fully again and this means that all current activities will cease from 6pm Friday 23rd October  and the Coffee Morning will not now be reinstated, for at least the two weeks of lockdown and until 9th November 2020..
We do hope that you can bear with us through this second period of full lockdown and that you will stay safe and well and we will keep you informed once we can open the Centre again.
Take good care,
Noddfa Community Centre Committee.
