You and Your Community
MHA understands the importance of investing in its communities. The Engagement Team’s focus is on improving health and wellbeing amongst our tenants, to create communities where people want to live.
We do this through running specific projects and by arranging events and activities. We also support existing community groups and can help tenants and residents set up a group, event or activity. We work very closely with many partners and agencies to get the very best of service for our tenants. If you would like support with arranging or running an activity, get in touch!
This summer we have sponsored places at the Monmouthshire Games, so that eligible MHA families can get 10 sessions for free! To find out if you are eligible contact the team. We also have a range of other activities which we are supporting. For more information or for our calendar of events - visit our Facebookpage!
- Rock Academy – This week long project saw 5 pupils from King Henry VII school, Abergavenny learn a range of instruments including Drums, Guitar and Beatboxing. They formed a band, learnt well known songs and performed at our Making a Difference Awards to an audience of over 130 people! Rock Academy focuses on forming relationships, learning new skills and building confidence. For more information, click here.
- Road to Rio – Last summer we attended a range of community events and also ran outreach sport sessions with Monmouthshire Youth Service. Road to Rio is a van packed full of all types of Olympic sports equipment, giving young people across Monmouthshire the opportunity to try new sports.
- Coffee and Computers – The Coffee and Computers group in Raglan meet on a regular basis to socialise and learn more about using laptops/tablets. The group have recently become constituted, and continue to grow from strength to strength with support from volunteers through Digital Communities Wales. For more information please click here.
- Life Styles and Smiles – This project offered intensive one to one support with 4 families from the Caldicot area. They had a Personal Health coach to guide them on exercising, wellbeing and healthy eating over a 12 week period.
