Each year, we award a total of £3,000 in grants under our Community Benefits Fund, which are aimed at supporting tenants and people living in our communities through activities, events, sport and equipment. Each applicant is awarded up to £500, meaning we are able to support six initiatives every year.

One of the recipients in 2023 was Rubicon Dance, who used a £500 grant to fund the Rubicon Schools Connections Programme. 

In November and December, 191 children aged 6-10 years and 18 staff from Moorland Primary, Stacey Primary, Tredegarville Primary and Baden Powell Primary participated in dance workshops and every child involved was also offered a free session at Rubicon Dance in Adamsdown. 

This is the first time we have set up a Schools Connection programme. The aim was to encourage local children to attend Rubicon sessions and for them to experience dance in school or a studio. Many of the children would have never considered dance before, and as it is now an important factor in the new Welsh Curriculum we felt it would be the perfect time to reach out.  Thank you so much CCHA for supporting this local schools programme. We are pleased to say that some children involved in this programme have now signed up for weekly sessions at Rubicon Dance. We are incredibly grateful to CCHA for the support in making this programme happen and for so many local primary school children to Rubicon!

We were delighted to be able to award this grant to Rubicon Dance. Through the Community Benefits Fund, children who live in our community had the opportunity to take part in something they might not have considered or had access to before, and to strengthen the partnership between Rubicon Dance and primary schools in the Adamsdown area.
