Cymunedau ar draws Cymru i elwa ar gyllid ychwanegol
Bydd canolfannau cymunedol a phrosiectau lleol ar draws Cymru yn elwa ar werth bron £3.5m o grantiau oddi wrth Lywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru.
Mae'r Gweinidog dros Gyfiawnder Cymdeithasol ac Adfywio, Edwina Hart, wedi rhoi sÍl ei bendith ar 48 o wahanol gynlluniau ar draws Cymru. Bydd cyllid gwerth £3.37m yn cael ei rannu dros y tair blynedd nesaf fel rhan o'r cylch diweddaraf o geisiadau o dan Raglen Cyfleusterau a Gweithgareddau Cymunedol Llywodraeth y Cynulliad.
Mae'r cynllun yn cynnig cymorth grantiau i grwpiau gwirfoddol a chymunedol a'i nod yw gwella cyfleusterau a gweithgareddau i bobl o bob oed a gallu.
Meddai Mrs. Hart: "Mae gennym etifeddiaeth gyfoethog o adeiladau cymunedol a chyfleusterau lleol ym mhob rhan o Gymru sydd wedi ein helpu i feithrin cymunedau cryf a gweithgar. Ond mae angen enbyd i gymaint ohonynt gael eu hadnewyddu a'u gwella er mwyn bod yn addas ar gyfer yr 21ain ganrif.
"Gwn fod grwpiau bychain ledled Cymru sy'n gweithio'n anhygoel o galed, fel arfer yn ddi-d‚l - ac mae'r rhain yn hanfodol i ysbryd y gymuned. Rwy'n falch bod Llywodraeth y Cynulliad yn gallu eu helpu i ddal ati am flynyddoedd lawer i ddod.
Bydd llawer o'r grantiau a rennir yn y cylch cyllido hwn yn talu am adnewyddu adeiladau cymunedol neu neuaddau pentrefi, ond mae rhai gweithgareddau cymunedol hefyd wedi derbyn cymorth. Mae'r rhain yn cynnwys cynllun cerddoriaeth a drama i bobl ifanc anfoddog, prosiect i wella diogelwch trwy osod cloeon am ddim, a chynnig cyngor ar ddiogeledd i bobl hyglwyf a chyflogau i staff y mae mawr angen amdanynt mewn parc sglefr-fyrddio.
Rhoddwyd cyllid hefyd i sawl canolfan er mwyn creu gwell mynediad i'r anabl neu ystafelloedd newid a thoiledau modern ar gyfer timau chwaraeon lleol.
Ychwanegodd Mrs. Hart: "Bu hwn yn gylch cyllido hynod gystadleuol unwaith eto, a derbyniwyd 119 o geisiadau. Rwy'n falch bod y rhaglen grantiau hon yn dal mor hygyrch a deniadol i grwpiau gwirfoddol a chymunedol ledled Cymru."
Communities across Wales to benefit from funding boost
Community centres and local projects across Wales are set to benefit from nearly £3.5m worth of grants from the Welsh Assembly Government.
The Minister for Social Justice and Regeneration, Edwina Hart, has given the go-ahead to 48 different schemes across Wales. Funding worth £3.37m will be issued over the next three years as part of the latest round of applications under the Assembly Governmentís Community Facilities and Activities Programme (CFAP).
The scheme offers grant support to voluntary and community groups and aims to improve facilities and activities for people of all ages and abilities.
Mrs Hart said: "We have a rich heritage of community buildings and local facilities all over Wales which have helped us build strong and active communities. However, so many are in desperate need of refurbishment and improvement to be fit for the 21st century.
"I know that there are small groups throughout Wales which work incredibly hard, usually unpaid - and these are a vital ingredient to the community spirit. I am proud that the Assembly Government is able to help them carry on for many years to come.
Many of the grants issued in this round of funds will pay for the renovation of community buildings or village halls, but some community activities have also been supported. These include a music and drama scheme for disaffected young people, a project to improve safety by fitting free locks and offering security advice to vulnerable people and salaries for much-needed staff at a skateboard park.
Funding has also been given to several centres that need better disabled access or modernised changing rooms and toilets for local sports teams.
Mrs Hart added: "This has been another highly competitive funding round, with 119 applications received. I am pleased that this grant programme continues to be so accessible and attractive to voluntary and community groups throughout Wales."

CFAP can help provide facilities or carry out activities, which will promote the regeneration of communities.
Priorities include ensuring equal access to disabled people, improving the well-being of the community by encouraging active and healthy lifestyles, strengthening cultural and linguistic identity, involving people of all ages and helping reduce poverty, inequality, discrimination and social disadvantage.
