FOREWORD 2017/18 another year has gone by with staff and volunteers excelling in their efforts to provide ongoing support despite constant pressures on maintaining service levels for the third sector with less financial resources. We thank all of the AVOW Trustees, who have a very broad range of knowledge and expertise, for ensuring that AVOW is compliant with legislation and governance. Setting such high standards ourselves means we are able to support organisations to the highest standards in their own governance. Our team of volunteers are spread across a number of areas including the Volunteer Centre, Ollies Café, The Land, Little Sunflowers, Substance Misuse, Business Support and Shopmobility. We are exceptionally lucky to have such a dedicated group of volunteers giving their time freely for others. Many thanks to each and every one of you. The recently published Well-being Plan for 2018-2023 by Wrexham’s Public Service Board (PSB) gives the third sector the

opportunity of being recognised for all of its efforts in supporting Well-being. As an ageing society we need to look innovatively at ways of encouraging people to remain more active both physically and mentally – volunteering is ideal. The work of the PSB to deliver the Well-being Plan means that agencies must work together to create change or make improvements in people’s lives. Partnership working is crucial, as is co-producing services with service users and citizens. AVOW and the third sector are ideally placed to support this. Moving away from tick box consultations to something more meaningful and worthwhile is essential – the completion of a questionnaire should never be the start and finish of the process. We look forward to seeing how the development of alternative delivery models, as defined in the Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015 and Social Service and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, will manifest itself to some real out of the box thinking, not hopefully just an exercise in re-tendering.

3 Since the signing of our Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Wrexham Glyndŵr University at last year’s AGM, we have fostered closer links with a number of faculties and potential future collaborative working. Both Glyndŵr and Coleg Cambria have many students who have benefited from volunteer opportunities and work placements through AVOW. Third Sector Support Wales (TSSW) has seen a complete revision of the Volunteering in Wales recruitment platform and created an App for managing volunteers and recording their time commitment. Other developments are Infoengine which is the all Wales public database of third sector organisations accessed through https://en.infoengine.cymru/ – all organisations are urged to check if they are listed as Infoengine will be the ‘go to’ place for information about the sector. Finally we thank most sincerely all organisations and individuals who have been to AVOW during the year for help and support which we hope has met your expectations – AVOW’s existence is based on demand - keep up the enquiries, we are here to help.

A key message from the sector is that the reduction in funding coupled with the increasing number of clients/service users is reaching breaking point.

AVOW VISION The AVOW Vision is the voluntary and community sectors achieving their missions for the benefit of the community within the County Borough of Wrexham. To enable the voluntary and community sectors to achieve their missions for the benefit of the community within the County Borough of Wrexham, AVOW will: Support the development of individuals and organisations within the voluntary and community sectors. Establish and sustain good practice. Undertake the provision of services appropriate to the voluntary and community sectors. Consult, represent and champion the voluntary and community sectors locally and nationally.

Third Sector Support Wales (TSSW) is the new name for the network of support organisations for the third sector in Wales. Consisting of the 19 County Voluntary Councils (CVC’s) in Wales as well as Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), the shared goal is to enable the third sector and volunteers across Wales to contribute fully to individual and community well-being, now and for the future. This meant new branding for the network as well as revised monitoring and guidance for CVC’s to better support the third sector. This will be done across four pillars of activity: Volunteering Good governance Sustainable funding Engagement and influencing TSSW’s work is broadly focussed on the common themes of: Information and advice Learning and development Networking and communication Shaping, influencing and building the social capital and resilience of the sector; and Raising the profile of the sector Find out more about how AVOW are achieving this on pages 7-14


GOAL -

WALES BENEFITS AND THRIVES BECAUSE OF VOLUNTEERING

AVOW’s Volunteer Centre offers advice and guidance to voluntary organisations operating in Wrexham County Borough through the Volunteer Network Meetings. The Meetings are arranged on a quarterly basis and offer advice and support to the sector as well as giving Volunteer Managers the opportunity to share information and build relationships through networking. Wrexham Volunteer Centre promotes a model of good practice to voluntary organisations in Wrexham County Borough based on the principles of the Investing in Volunteers Standards. Advice and support can be offered on either an individual or group basis. Improved Well-being for Volunteers; Natalie was studying administration at Coleg Cambria when she applied to volunteer at Tŷ Avow to gain experience alongside her course. Natalie says that volunteering has ‘given me the opportunity to improve and demonstrate my skills, as well as learning new skills. My self-confidence has grown so much since starting to volunteer which has also improved my social life immensely and I have met lots of interesting and diverse people. My volunteering has helped staff and volunteers at AVOW, as well as visitors to the building’. Natalie has since been offered a new job in Wrexham and has said that ‘volunteering has significantly helped me feel confident enough to apply and to be capable of doing the job’ Well done Natalie! Thank you for your time at Tŷ Avow and good luck for the future! Volunteering grants WCVA has provided AVOW with £4000 to distribute via a Youth Led Grants scheme, the aim being to increase youth volunteering opportunities and benefit the wider community. A panel of young people with a wealth of knowledge run the scheme in Wrexham and this year awarded funding to 8 projects including: Vic Studios, Wrexham; put on a celebration and performance event for young people with disabilities. This included young people performing their own songs and showcasing their talent to family, friends and local dignitaries such as Welsh Assembly Members and MPs. Wrexham Young People's Care Council: A three-sided project (drama workshop/performance/film) which aimed to address the difficulties which young people in care face such as lack of privacy, not being able to have sleepovers and lack of support/friendship groups to support emotional wellbeing. Access to volunteering AVOW have facilitated 6 monthly Volunteer Recruitment Sessions this year which offer organisations the opportunity to recruit volunteers, network with other third sector organisations and promote their volunteering opportunities. At a recent Volunteer Fayre at Glyndŵr University a Polish Social Work Student expressed an interest in volunteering with North East Wales Mind. This resulted in the new volunteer attending a Saturday Session mentoring individuals from the Polish community in Wrexham. In the past 6 months a number of new volunteers have been recruited at a local Crisis Café. The service provides a “one stop shop” for the homeless community in Wrexham offering access to GP services, food bank and laundry facilities. Volunteers report that in giving time to this project that they are “giving something back” for services they have received in the past.

GOOD GOVERNANCE

8

GOAL-

THOSE INVOLVED IN RUNNING THIRD SECTOR ORGANISATIONS EFFECTIVELY LEAD THEIR ORGANISATIONS AND MAINTAIN HIGH STANDARDS OF GOVERNANCE

TRAINING AVOW offer a comprehensive training programme to assist Trustees and Managers of Voluntary and Community organisations. New Data Protection legislation caused a lot of concern within the sector with many enquiries and requests for training. AVOW facilitated 3 training sessions for third sector organisations including one from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

QUALITY Two members of staff have also received training to help and support organisations looking to demonstrate their Social Return On Investment (SROI). Social Value is about understanding what has changed in someone’s life as a result of particular activities and valuing those changes, with SROI being about measuring that change to see if it demonstrates that the investment made in a project is delivering a genuine return. Next year AVOW will be supporting 5 Wrexham based voluntary organisations to produce an SROI report as part of a North Wales National Lottery project facilitated by Mantell Gwynedd.

SUPPORT The Community Development Officer provides vital support to those third sector organisations requiring bespoke assistance with their governance. This ranges from training with the organisation’s Board of Trustees on matters such as recruiting and retaining Trustees as well as supporting groups to set up as a charity. Empower be the Change are an example of an organisation which has benefitted from ongoing AVOW support at many stages in their journey from inception to sustainability. They were given initial support to set up, and since then they have subscribed to all our information channels including the e-bulletin and social media. They have approached AVOW with funding enquiries and have acted upon articles detailing funds as promoted through our information channels. They have been successful with bids to Comic Relief Local Communities, BBC Children in Need, Tesco Bags of Help, and now Big Lottery People & Places. They are currently recruiting staff to deliver their expanded services.

GDPR TRAINING SESSIONS FOR THIRD SECTOR ORGANISATIONS

MENTOR


BME PROJECT One of the outcomes for this Pillar is that third sector organisations play an active role in engaging and working with people and communities, including seldom heard groups. This is evidenced by the new Black and Minority ethnic (BME) project which started in January 2017. AVOW is a partner with Cardiff and Swansea CVC’s on a project led by Ethnic Minorities and Youth Support Team Wales (EYST) to run an engagement project with the BME community. The project will be focussing on the recruitment of trustees and mentors from within the BME community and to support organisations that offer support to the BME community.

GLYNDWR UNIVERSITY MOU In July 2017, AVOW signed an official Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Glyndŵr University, thought to be the first of its kind in Wales, the MOU formalises the excellent working relationship that has existed for many years between the University and the third sector in Wrexham and ensures that the working relationship continues to benefit Wrexham County Borough.

GOAL FUNDING EVENTS A training session was delivered in collaboration with Local Giving. It was observed in the session that a number of groups were eager to take advantage of online funding opportunities, but lacked technical skills and confidence. AVOW invited Local Giving back to hold a follow up 1-2-1 session offering practical technical support. Ten organisations have since raised a combined total of ÂŁ7,758.38 through Local Giving as a result of this collaboration. Turn2us were invited to hold a training event around using their resources for assisting people in financial difficulties. The training covered debt advice, seeking grants and benefit support. The training was in collaboration with the Community Agents project and received a good response. In addition we have collaborated with a number of funders, such as the Big Lottery Fund, Scottish Power Foundation, Sports Wales, Children in Need and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

FUNDING SERVICES A Grants Fit for Funding course was delivered to the sector. Feedback suggested that all attendees were more than satisfied with the training provided. A fundraiser from a Community Transport organisation who attended a previous Grants Fit for Funding course, advised that, thanks to the training and access to a funding portal, he has been successful in raising over ÂŁ100,000 from funding bids for his organisation. Through AVOW support he has gained the knowledge and resources to keep his organisation financially sustainable.


A course on ‘Introduction to Community Fundraising’ was successfully delivered to 16 attendees from 15 different organisations. The online fundraising course and practical support session was a success, with groups utilising their new skills to access fundraising platforms and raise money.

COMMUNICATION TO THE SECTOR Information on funds, training, fundraising and other opportunities is circulated in a weekly e-bulletin. This is free and is widely distributed. The advantage to using the e-bulletin to promote funds and other opportunities is that the information can be turned around very quickly. AVOW have received very positive feedback from recipients of the e-bulletin, including some groups reporting that they have successfully applied for funds that they have seen featured including Confide Counselling who applied for, and received, Libor Funding.

PLAY The AVOW Play Team is funded through Invest Local, Children in Need and Families First to work in Plas Madoc providing services for children, parents and adults within the community. Playschemes and Street Play are also provided in other communities in Wrexham County Borough funded from Community Councils such as Pant, Pentre Broughton and Brynteg. The Land (a junk playground in Plas Madoc) remains the jewel in the Play Team’s crown, attracting global attention for its innovative approach to play and has received several awards.

AVOW has two childcare services in Wrexham County Borough – one based in Plas Madoc and one in Acton. Both provide a variety of services including Early Education, morning and afternoon playgroups and an after school club. Recent inspections from Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) were positive with Plas Madoc Little Sunflowers being highly commended for their transitional work between the setting and the local primary school.

The number of people volunteering in Wrexham is staggering – but who knows how many there are? AVOW. The number of opportunities to volunteer is vast and growing – but who knows where they are? AVOW. Charities and organisations, like The Venture, increasingly rely on the work of volunteers – who can point them in our direction? AVOW. Whether it’s advice on GDPR, a drop-in surgery to promote your cause or a helpful professional at the end of an email or phone – AVOW is very much the stitches of the fabric of Wrecsam. My past year in the third sector would not have been as seamless or fun without the generous support of this CVC. Diolch yn fawr!

GWASANAETHAU ERAILL

CHWARAE Caiff Tîm Chwarae AVOW eu hariannu drwy Fuddsoddi Lleol, Plant Mewn Angen a Theuluoedd yn Gyntaf i weithio ym Mhlas Madog gan gynnig gwasanaethau i blant, rhieni ac oedolion yn y gymuned. Mae’r tîm hefyd yn cynnig Cynlluniau Chwarae a Chwarae ar y Stryd mewn cymunedau eraill ym Mwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam wedi eu hariannu gan Gynghorau Cymuned fel Pant, Pentre Brychdyn a Brynteg. Mae’r Tir (The Land) (maes chwarae sbwriel ym Mhlas Madog) yn parhau i fod yn gyfleuster gwerthfawr a blaenllaw i’r Tîm Chwarae, gan ddenu sylw dros y byd am ei ddull arloesol ynghylch chwarae. Mae hefyd wedi ennill sawl gwobr.

Mae AVOW yn cynnig dau wasanaeth gofal plant ym Mwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam – un ym Mhlas Madog ac un yng Ngwaunyterfyn. Mae’r ddau yn cynnig nifer o wasanaethau gan gynnwys Addysg Gynnar, cylchoedd chwarae yn y bore a’r prynhawn a chlwb ar ôl ysgol. Bu archwiliadau diweddar gan Arolygiaeth Gofal Cymru (CIW) yn gadarnhaol a chafodd Blodau Bach yr Haul Plas Madog eu canmol yn helaeth am eu gwaith pontio rhwng y safle a’r ysgol gynradd leol.


Gwasanaeth hynod fuddiol i lawer o bobl fuasai’n methu â theithio o amgylch y dref fel arall. Mae Shopmobility, ger Gorsaf Fws Stryd y Brenin yn cynnig sgwteri symudedd a chadeiriau olwyn o ddim ond £3.00 y dydd. Eleni bu inni weld y nifer o wirfoddolwyr yn Shopmobility gynyddu o 2 i 5.

Mae'r gwasanaeth Shopmobility yn gweithredu fflyd o gadeiriau olwyn â llaw a sgwter trydanol a sgwteri i'w defnyddio gan unrhyw un â phroblemau symudedd.

Unwaith y bydd yn aelod, byddwch chi ond yn archebu'r peiriant ar gyfer pryd y bydd ei angen arnoch.

Os nad ydych erioed wedi defnyddio peiriant cyn i chi gael ein gweddill, mae'n hawdd i ni weithredu. Fe'u dyluniwyd i'w defnyddio ar balmantau a byddant yn teithio wrth gyflymder cerdded sy'n cael eu gyrru gan reolaethau hawdd eu defnyddio. I'r rhai ohonoch chi'n anghyfarwydd â'r math hwn o offer, darperir hyfforddiant

GWASANAETHAU TRYDYDD SECTOR YN CYFRANNU AT LESIANT CYMUNEDOL

Cafodd cwrs ‘Cyflwyniad i Godi Arian Cymunedol’ ei gynnig yn llwyddiannus i 16 unigolyn o 15 mudiad gwahanol. Roedd y cwrs ariannu ar-lein a’r sesiwn cefnogi ymarferol yn llwyddiant, gyda grwpiau yn defnyddio’u sgiliau newydd i fanteisio ar lwyfannau cyllid a chodi arian.

CYFATHREBU GYDA’R SECTOR Caiff gwybodaeth am gyllid, hyfforddiant, codi arian a chyfleoedd eraill ei rannu mewn e-fwletin wythnosol. Mae’r e-fwletin am ddim a chaiff ei ddosbarthu yn eang. Mantais defnyddio’r e-fwletin i hyrwyddo cyllid a chyfleoedd eraill ydy fod modd rhannu’r wybodaeth yn sydyn. Bu i AVOW dderbyn adborth hynod gadarnhaol gan y rheiny sy’n derbyn yr e-fwletin a dywedodd rhai grwpiau eu bod nhw wedi cyflwyno ceisiadau cyllid llwyddiannus am gyllid wedi ei hysbysebu. Ymysg y grwpiau oedd Confide Counselling wnaeth geisio am, a derbyn, Cyllid Libor.

CYNALIADWY CYLLID

NOD DIGWYDDIADAU ARIANNU Bu sesiwn hyfforddiant ar y cyd â Local Giving. Cafodd ei grybwyll yn y sesiwn fod sawl grŵp yn awyddus i fanteisio ar gyfleoedd ariannu ar-lein ond prin oedd eu sgiliau technegol ac roedd ganddyn nhw ddiffyg hyder. Bu i AVOW wahodd Local Giving i ddychwelyd i gynnal sesiwn 1-2-1 dilynol yn cynnig cefnogaeth dechnegol ymarferol. Ers hynny bu i ddeg mudiad godi cyfanswm ar y cyd o of £7,758.38 drwy Local Giving yn sgil y cydweithio. Cafodd Turn2us eu gwahodd i gynnal digwyddiad hyfforddiant yn ymwneud â defnyddio’u hadnoddau i helpu pobl yn dioddef trafferthion ariannol. Bu’r hyfforddiant yn ymdrin â chyngor am ddyledion, dod o hyd i grantiau a chefnogaeth gyda budd-daliadau. Roedd yr hyfforddiant ar y cyd â’r prosiect Asiantaethau Cymunedol a bu inni dderbyn ymateb cadarnhaol. Yn ogystal, bu inni gydweithio gyda nifer o arianwyr fel Cronfa’r Loteri Fawr, Sefydliad Scottish Power, Chwaraeon Cymru, Plant Mewn Angen a Chronfa Treftadaeth y Loteri.

GWASANAETHAU ARIANNU Cafodd cwrs Grantiau Addas ar Gyfer Ariannu ei gynnal ar gyfer y sector. O fwrw golwg ar yr adborth, roedd y rheiny oedd yn bresennol yn fwy na bodlon gyda’r hyfforddiant. Bu i unigolyn sy’n codi arian o fudiad Cludiant Cymunedol wnaeth fynychu cwrs Grantiau Addas ar Gyfer Ariannu blaenorol ddweud, oherwydd yr hyfforddiant a’r modd o fanteisio ar borth ariannu, bu’n llwyddiannus yn codi dros £100,000 o geisiadau ariannu ar gyfer ei fudiad. Gyda chefnogaeth AVOW, bu iddo ddysgu’r wybodaeth a manteisio ar yr adnoddau angenrheidiol er mwyn gofalu fod ei fudiad yn gynaliadwy yn ariannol.

PROSIECT POBL GROENDDU A PHOBL O GEFNDIROEDD ETHNIG LLEIAFRIFOL Un o ddeilliannau’r Piler hwn ydy fod mudiadau trydydd sector yn chwarae rhan ymarferol mewn ymwneud a chydweithio gyda phobl a chymunedau, gan gynnwys grwpiau lle na chaiff eu llais ei glywed yn aml. Mae tystiolaeth o hyn gyda’r prosiect Pobl Groenddu a Phobl o Gefndiroedd Ethnig Lleiafrifol (BME) a gychwynnodd ym mis Ionawr 2017. Mae AVOW yn cydweithio gyda Chynghorau Gwirfoddol Sirol Caerdydd ac Abertawe ar brosiect wedi ei arwain gan Dîm Cymorth Lleiafrifoedd Ethnig ac Ieuenctid Cymru (EYST) i gynnal prosiect cydweithio gyda’r gymuned Groenddu a Phobl o Gefndiroedd Ethnig Lleiafrifol. Bydd y prosiect yn canolbwyntio ar recriwtio ymddiriedolwyr a mentoriaid o’r gymuned Pobl Groenddu a Phobl o Gefndiroedd Ethnig Lleiafrifol a chefnogi mudiadau sy’n cynnig cefnogaeth i’r gymuned Pobl Groenddu a Phobl o Gefndiroedd Ethnig Lleiafrifol

MEMORANDWM DEALLTWRIAETH PRIFYSGOL GLYNDWR Ym mis Gorffennaf 2017, bu i AVOW arwyddo Memorandwm Dealltwriaeth (MOU) swyddogol gyda Phrifysgol Glyndŵr. Mae’n debyg mai hwnnw oedd y cyntaf o’i fath yng Nghymru ac mae’r Memorandwm Dealltwriaeth yn ffurfioli’r perthynas gweithio rhagorol sy’n bodoli ers blynyddoedd maith rhwng y Brifysgol a’r trydydd sector yn Wrecsam ac mae’n gofalu fod y perthynas gwaith yn parhau i fod o fudd i Fwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam.

Y RHEINY SY’N GYFRIFOL AM GYNNAL MUDIADAU TRYDYDD SECTOR YN ARWAIN EU MUDIAD YN EFFEITHIOL A CHYNNAL SAFONAU UCHEL O DREFN LYWODRAETHOL

HYFFORDDIANT Mae AVOW yn cynnig cynllun hyfforddi cynhwysfawr i helpu Ymddiriedolwyr a Rheolwyr mudiadau Gwirfoddol a Chymunedol. Bu i’r ddeddfwriaeth Diogelu Data newydd achosi cryn bryder yn y sector gyda sawl mudiad yn holi a cheisio am hyfforddiant. Bu i AVOW hwyluso 3 sesiwn hyfforddi ar gyfer mudiadau trydydd sector gan gynnwys un o Swyddfa’r Comisiynydd Gwybodaeth.

ANSAWDD

Mae AVOW yn cyflogi mentor PQASSO cymwys sy’n medru cefnogi mudiadau i roi PQASSO ar waith yn llwyddiannus. Mae PQASSO yn farc ansawdd wedi ei ddatblygu gan y trydydd sector ar gyfer y trydydd sector ac mae’n ymwneud ag 11 maes ansawdd fel Trefn Lywodraethol, Arwain a Rheoli, Rheoli Arian ac Asesu Deilliannau ac Effaith. Hefyd bu i ddau aelod o staff dderbyn hyfforddiant i helpu a chefnogi mudiadau sy’n dymuno cyflwyno eu Helw Cymdeithasol ar Fuddsoddiad (SROI). Ystyr Gwerth Cymdeithasol ydy deall newidiadau ym mywyd rhywun yn sgil gwaith penodol a gwerthfawrogi’r newidiadau hynny. Diben yr Elw Cymdeithasol ar Fuddsoddiad ydy mesur y newidiadau hynny i weld ydy hynny’n dangos fod buddsoddiad mewn prosiect yn cynnig elw gwirioneddol. Y flwyddyn nesaf, bydd AVOW yn cefnogi 5 mudiad gwirfoddol yn Wrecsam i lunio adroddiad Elw Cymdeithasol ar Fuddsoddiad fel rhan o brosiect Loteri Cenedlaethol Gogledd Cymru wedi ei hwyluso gan Fantell Gwynedd.

CEFNOGAETH Mae’r Swyddog Datblygu Cymunedol yn cynnig cefnogaeth hanfodol i’r mudiadau trydydd sector hynny sy’n dymuno manteisio ar gymorth unigryw iddyn nhw gyda’u trefn lywodraethol. Mae’r swyddog yn cynnig amrywiaeth o wasanaethau fel hyfforddiant gyda Bwrdd Ymddiriedolwyr y mudiad ar faterion fel recriwtio a chadw Ymddiriedolwyr ynghyd â helpu grwpiau i sefydlu fel elusen. Mae Empower be the Change yn enghraifft o fudiad fu’n elwa o gefnogaeth barhaus AVOW yn ystod sawl cam o’u taith o sefydlu eu mudiad hyd at gynnal eu mudiad. Bu iddyn nhw dderbyn cefnogaeth ar y cychwyn i sefydlu eu mudiad ac erbyn hyn maen nhw wedi tanysgrifio gyda’n holl ffynonellau gwybodaeth fel yr e-fwletin ac ein tudalennau cyfryngau cymdeithasol. Bu iddyn nhw gysylltu ag AVOW gydag ymholiadau ariannol a gweithredu yn ymwneud ag erthyglau yn ymdrin â chyllid fel caiff eu hyrwyddo drwy ein ffynonellau gwybodaeth. Bu’r mudiad yn llwyddiannus gyda’u ceisiadau i Gymunedau Lleol Comic Relief, Plant mewn Angen y BBC, Tesco Bags of Help, ac erbyn hyn Pawb A’i Le y Loteri Fawr. Maen nhw ar hyn o bryd yn recriwtio staff i gynnig eu gwasanaethau estynedig.

Mae staff Canolfan Wirfoddoli AVOW yn cynnig cyngor ac arweiniad i fudiadau gwirfoddol ym Mwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam drwy’r Cyfarfodydd Rhwydwaith Gwirfoddoli. Caiff y Cyfarfodydd eu cynnal yn chwarterol ac maen nhw’n fodd i’r sector fanteisio ar gyngor a chefnogaeth. Mae’r cyfarfodydd hefyd yn gyfle i Reolwyr Gwirfoddoli rannu gwybodaeth a datblygu perthnasau drwy rwydweithio. Mae Canolfan Wirfoddoli Wrecsam yn hyrwyddo model ymarfer da, i fudiadau gwirfoddol ym Mwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam, sy’n ymwneud ag egwyddorion Safonau Buddsoddi mewn Gwirfoddolwyr. Gallwn gynnig cyngor a chefnogaeth i unigolion neu i grwpiau. Hwb i lesiant Gwirfoddolwyr; Roedd Natalie wrthi’n astudio gweinyddiaeth yng Ngholeg Cambria pan fu iddi gyflwyno cais i Dŷ Avow i wirfoddoli yno er mwyn ennill profiad wrth gwblhau ei chwrs. Dywedodd Natalie ‘bu gwirfoddoli yn gyfle imi wella a dangos fy sgiliau ynghyd â dysgu sgiliau newydd. Bu’n hwb aruthrol i fy hyder ers imi ddechrau gwirfoddoli a bu i hyn wella fy mywyd cymdeithasol yn ddirfawr. Bu imi gyfarfod nifer o bobl ddifyr a gwahanol. Bu i fy ngwaith gwirfoddol helpu staff a gwirfoddolwyr AVOW, ynghyd ag ymwelwyr i’r adeilad’. Cafodd Natalie gynnig swydd newydd yn Wrecsam ers cychwyn gwirfoddoli a dywedodd ‘mae gwirfoddoli wedi fy helpu’n sylweddol i deimlo’n ddigon hyderus i geisio a theimlo’n barod i fedru cyflawni’r swydd’ Da iawn Natalie! Diolch am dy amser yn Nhŷ Avow a phob lwc at y dyfodol! Grantiau gwirfoddoli Bu i WCVA gyflwyno £4000 i AVOW i’w ddyrannu fel rhan o Gynllun Grantiau dan Arweiniad Pobl Ifanc. Y nod ydy cynyddu cyfleoedd gwirfoddoli i bobl ifanc a chynnig budd i’r gymuned ehangach. Mae panel o bobl ifanc sy’n meddu ar gyfoeth o wybodaeth yn cynnal y cynllun yn Wrecsam ac eleni bu iddyn nhw gyflwyno cyllid i 8 prosiect, gan gynnwys y canlynol: Stiwdios Vic, Wrecsam; cynnal digwyddiad dathlu a pherfformiad i bobl ifanc gydag anableddau. Bu i’r bobl ifanc berfformio’u caneuon eu hunain ac arddangos eu doniau i’w teulu, ffrindiau ac urddasogion lleol fel Aelodau Cynulliad Cymru ac Aelodau Seneddol. Cyngor Gofalu Pobl Ifanc Wrecsam: Prosiect tair agwedd (gweithdy drama/perfformiad/ffilm) sydd â’r diben o fynd i’r afael â’r trafferthion y mae pobl ifanc mewn gofal yn eu hwynebu, fel diffyg preifatrwydd, methu â mwynhau cysgu drosodd yn nhai ffrindiau a diffyg cefnogaeth/ grwpiau ffrindiau i gefnogi llesiant emosiynol. Manteisio ar wirfoddoli Bu i AVOW hwyluso 6 Sesiwn Recriwtio Gwirfoddolwyr misol eleni sy’n gyfle i fudiadau recriwtio gwirfoddolwyr, rhwydweithio gyda mudiadau trydydd sector eraill a hyrwyddo eu cyfleoedd gwirfoddoli.

GWIRFODDOLI

Mewn Ffair Wirfoddoli diweddar ym Mhrifysgol Glyndŵr, bu i Myfyriwr Gwaith Cymdeithasol o Wlad Pwyl fynegi diddordeb mewn gwirfoddoli gyda Mind Gogledd Ddwyrain Cymru. Yn sgil hyn, bu i’r gwirfoddolwr newydd fynychu Sesiwn ddydd Sadwrn yn mentora unigolion o’r gymuned Pwyleg yn Wrecsam. Yn ystod y 6 mis diwethaf, cafodd sawl gwirfoddolwr newydd eu recriwtio mewn Caffi Argyfwng lleol. Mae’r gwasanaeth yn cynnig “siop un pwrpas” ar gyfer trigolion digartref yn Wrecsam gan gynnig cyfle i fanteisio ar wasanaethau Meddyg Teulu, banc bwyd a chyfleusterau golchi dillad. Bu i wirfoddolwyr ddatgan eu bod yn “cynnig Iawndal” wrth fod yn rhan o’r prosiect, am wasanaethau y bu iddyn nhw eu derbyn yn y gorffennol

RHAGAIR 2017/18 bu i flwyddyn arall fynd heibio gyda staff a gwirfoddolwyr yn rhagori yn eu hymdrechion i gynnig cefnogaeth, a hynny er gwaethaf pwysau cyson ar gynnal safonau gwasanaeth ar gyfer y trydydd sector. Hyn i gyd gyda llai fyth o adnoddau ariannol. Hoffem ddiolch i holl Ymddiriedolwyr AVOW, sy’n meddu ar wybodaeth ac arbenigedd eang gan ofalu fod AVOW yn cydymffurfio gyda deddfwriaethau a’r drefn lywodraethol. Wrth fynd ati i osod safonau uchel ein hunain, mae modd inni gefnogi mudiadau i’r safon uchaf posib gyda’u trefn lywodraethol eu hunain. Mae ein tîm o wirfoddolwyr wedi eu gwasgaru rhwng sawl man a maes gan gynnwys y Ganolfan Wirfoddoli, Caffi Ollie, Y Tir (The Land), Blodau Bach yr Haul (Little Sunflowers), Camddefnyddio Sylweddau, Cefnogaeth Busnes a Shopmobility. Rydym yn lwcus dros ben o recriwtio tîm mor ymroddgar o wirfoddolwyr yn cynnig eu hamser o’u gwirfodd eu hunain er lles eraill. Diolch o galon i bob un ohonoch chi.
