About People & Work

People & Work is an independent charity (established in 1984) working in Wales.

It seeks to make a positive difference to life in Wales through its two core functions:

  • to promote the value of education and learning as a tool for tackling inequalities and promoting employment, through a programme of community based action research projects.
  • to undertake commissioned research and evaluation work for the public and third sectors in Wales addressing inequalities in areas such as education, health and employment.

The video on this page explores some joint thinking with partners about the power of place to develop positive outcomes for individuals, families and communities in Wales and is based on our practical project experience over 30 years (some of which is featured) and academic research studies sponsored by People & Work (including three Phd studies). We discussed the power of place at our 2019 AGM. A discussion paper introduced this theme for our AGM Seminar in 2019. Click the link on this page to read it.

Kick Start

People & Work is delighted to be working in partnership with the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action and Job Centre Plus to offer three six month Kick Start posts – one with our sport and wellbeing project (Roderick Morgan), another with our digital project (Justin George) and a third with our social enterprise, Play It Again Sport (Dominic Turner). All three Kick Start trainees are Rhondda born and bred and are working with the rest of the local team to develop the thinking around Generation Rhondda – a vision to support local leadership.
