Carmarthenshire Youth and Children’s Association (CYCA) is a registered children’s charity (number 512720) who have been offering high quality informal educational and recreational services to Carmarthenshire’s children, young people and their families for over 30 years.

Is your eldest child aged between 5 and 10 years old?

Do you have difficulty understanding new or difficult information, learning new skills, coping independently with everyday activities – for example household tasks, interacting with other people or managing money?

or 

Do you often feel tense, anxious, nervous or overwhelmed?

If you answered yes to the above questions, then the Securing Futures project could help you. Securing Futures is a Big Lottery funded project which aims to provide early intervention to support families in Carmarthenshire.


We will listen to you, offer guidance and advice and if it is appropriate, a plan will be created to meet your needs. This could include: 

Mentoring - A mentor is someone who can listen and offer advice/support. They can organise activities for children and other family members.

Identify appropriate services that are available in your area and help you access these services.

Support you to develop self help strategies.

Advise with tenancy support, housing advice, benefits and information.

Support access to training, education, volunteering opportunities and work.

And much more.


As well as face to face support, the project will also feature online support through the development of a Virtual Interactive Gateway. The gateway will allow more flexibility in the way you can access support and will feature a host of digital tools offering information and advice on a variety of issues and conditions. The gateway will be up and running towards the end of 2012 and support and training to access and use this service will be given.

If you feel you could benefit from support then contact the team on 01554 757599, or email securingfutures@cycaonline.org
