The Environment Centre is delighted to host Bwyd Abertawe, a project which has been building a network of sustainable food initiatives, businesses and supporters to improve food resilience in Swansea. We have recently won a Sustainable Food Places (SFP) Development Grant that will fund a dedicated Project Coordinator to manage and develop the network, and to help Swansea become a vibrant centre for sustainable, local food, with a healthy and more equitable food system that works for people and the planet.

We want to recruit someone who is passionate about good food - not only its provenance and quality, but its benefits to nature, our local economy, and the health of residents, workers, students and visitors. We are looking for a Project Coordinator to continue developing this project, starting as soon as possible. Funding is available for one year but may continue subject to securing future funding.

Expectation: Work on the continued development and purpose of a local cross-sector food partnership, involving public, third and business sector organisations as well as community representatives, committed to working together across all key food issues, and oversee Bwyd Abertawe’s application to become an SFP Network member in March 2023.

Outcomes: By the end of contract the Coordinator will have:

  • Submitted a successful application for Swansea to become an SFP Network member
  • Established the Bwyd Abertawe Steering Committee, that will oversee Swansea’s continued development as an SFP
  • Gained commitment and input from key stakeholders to maintain and develop Swansea as an SFP
