Official County in the Community Partners

Melin Homes


We are a housing association providing affordable homes in South East Wales. As a registered social landlord we work closely with local authorities and other partners to build thriving communities. Our mission is to make a positive impact on these communities by providing high-quality social housing to those who need it. We also give money advice to our residents and organise community events to improve the lives of residents.

In 2017, we had our ten year anniversary since we were set up as a non-profit social housing provider in 2007. As one of the major housing associations in Wales we now own and manage over 4,000 homes in Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire, Torfaen, Newport and Powys. We not only offer homes for rent but also properties for sale, which can be bought with the help of low-cost home ownership schemes. We help our residents all along the way and offer advice on both renting and buying properties.

We have recently been placed 37th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Not-For-Profit Organisations to work for in 2017.

EFL Trust

The EFL Trust is a national charity that uses the power of football to change people’s lives.

The EFL Trust unites the inspirational work delivered across England and Wales by the dedicated network of community trusts associated to each of the 72 EFL clubs. Last year we engaged with over 1.5million people using the power of football to improve health, inspire education, reduce crime, increase participation and tackle many difficult social issues like drug abuse and homelessness. The Trust tackles society’s greater goals by inspiring people through powerful projects built upon a foundation of our four key themes; - sport, education, inclusion and health.

Based in the heart of their communities ours trusts use the magnetism of their club's badge to connect with people,
