4 the Community CIC

About 4TC

Established in 2013 our Community Interest Company, 4 the Community CIC was born from the amalgamation of numerous small community groups, residents and experienced community workers to form one entity. Our community organisation and the projects it hosts are based and delivered in the heart of West Rhyl, North Wales. Our members and leaders are all local residents who volunteer precious time and skills working at our facility located on the grounds of St Mary's Church and Presbytery. We work with, but are completely separate to, St Mary’s church.
We are community based and grass roots led. Our main work is to reduce social poverty and social exclusion, to make our community stronger and by building resident’s confidence, knowledge, skills, and local support networks create a cohesive community. Our approach helps to educate individuals, assist families, and strengthen communities. We also raise awareness on social poverty in the UK through information gathering and circulation through a monthly newsletter called Poverty Times.

Our Structure:
4TC is a Community Interest Company, registered with the CIC Regulator and companies house. The company is managed by a board of voluntary directors from the local community and supervised by paid employees alongside a team of dedicated volunteers who deliver a number of community projects and activities.

Our overall Aim:

Our Specific Aims:
