Ely and Caerau’s new Hub will open on the Jasmine Centre site this summer. Mark Drakeford AM and Kevin Brennan MP will hold the Cardiff West Constituency Surgery at the Hub every Saturday 10am-1230pm, starting July 5th. Surgeries will no longer be held at Ely Library from this date.
The Hub is located in Ely just off Cowbridge Road West by the Fire Station. The address is: Ely & Caerau Hub, Treseder Way, Cardiff CF5 5NW. Click here to see the Hub on a map.
Other facilities at the Hub will include:
- Full library service with events and activities for children.
- IT and self-service facilities including free internet access and telephone.
- Quiet area for study and use of IT.
- Housing advice and Benefits advice.
- Base for Communities First group ACE (Action in Caerau and Ely).
- Space for the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, Credit Unions and other community groups to offer their services.
- A café where people can mingle and share ideas informally.
Caerau’s two Labour councillors praised the new facility. Cllr Peter Bradbury said: “This is the one-stop shop Caerau needs – a place where you can get advice, develop your skills, access the full range of council services or just sit down and read a book.” Cllr Elaine Simmons added, “This is a centre designed by and for the people of Caerau and many of its best features result from the public consultation.”
