An exciting new centre for Ely and Caerau

Ely and Caerau’s new Hub will open on the Jasmine Centre site this summer.

Facilities 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.
  • Mark and Kevin Brennan MP will hold the Cardiff West Constituency Surgery at the Hub every Saturday 10am-1230pm.

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.”
