ctw_logoAbout the Civic Trust for Wales
The Civic Trust for Wales promotes civic pride as a means to improving the quality of life for all in the places where we live and work, and encourages community action, good design, sustainable development and respect for the built environment amongst people of all ages. Contact us.

Civic Societies
The Trust supports a network of civic and amenity societies across Wales. Societies are concerned with local character and sense of place. They engage with development and conservation issues. They recognise the need to think about the way places and communities are changing, and to ensure that what we build for the future respects the best of the past. Civic society links.

The Trust’s Exploring the character of towns programme is developing resources to support community groups as they explore the character of their streets and towns. It is closely allied to Cadw’s urban characterisation initiative. With Heritage Lottery Fund support, the Trust is working with community groups to develop methodologies of community involvement in characterisation and to build local capacity to engage in planning, development and regeneration issues.
