Following the closure of Ferndale Infant School in the summer of 2016 and much speculation within the community regarding the plans for the proposed building we are extremely excited and honoured our proposal was selected by RCT CBC and The Fern Partnership will be lead tenant within the facility.

We plan to develop an innovative Hwb at the heart of the community, which will deliver a collaboration of services as well as signposting to wider activities and support for the long term benefit and wellbeing of the community, including creating additional and sustainable employment in the valley.

The proposal has been developed in response to the identified needs of the community and will address gaps in current services as well as enhance the community offer.  This co-productive approach with the community will continue ensuring that they are involved in the development of future support.

The Hwb forms part of a wider Neighbourhood Network of support.
