About Us: Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund is available to community groups and businesses working to improve and develop opportunities for people living in the upper reaches of the Neath, Afan, Rhondda and Cynon valleys.

With an annual (index linked) income of £1.8m a year until 2043, it is currently the largest such fund in the UK. The Fund is managed by a fully independent Community Interest Company (CIC). The Board has eight Directors, responsible for ensuring that the organisation complies with its legal obligations and responsibilities and that standards of governance are high.
