Last week Nia Griffith MP had the pleadure of launching a new social enterprise, committed to full inclusion for everyone in Carmarthenshire. Ynghyd – meaning ‘together’ – is a venture that provides marketing, business and sustainability services for third sector organisations and aims to network groups and volunteers with common aims. The group will create jobs in the area and will lead on projects that help people with disabilities or work-limiting circumstances with training, work experience and support.
Speaking at its launch event at Llanelly House, Nia Griffith MP said, “Ynghyd is based upon the premise that every person has something to offer and every person can contribute”. Opening the new enterprise, the Llanelli MP went on to congratulate the team on laying the foundations for its work and wished Ynghyd every success.
Director of Ynghyd, Jon Hobden, described some of the projects already under way, including the launch of a community magazine for the county, with a free digital version available to everyone in Carmarthenshire.
“We’ve really hit the ground running”, said Jon Hobden, “There’s a big need for what we’re trying to do and we have a great band of professionals and volunteers making a difference.”
