Edited by Phil Cope, Pat Hill, Simon Jones and Jenny Turner

This publication investigates many different examples of community initiatives for development following the end of an era of coal mining in the South Wales Valleys, exploring community enterprises, cultural, educational, community arts and development projects. Documenting this activity alongside a time of immense change for industry, communities and society from 1985 to 1995, this report follows the themes of wealth, culture, women, education, environment, transport, disability and youth.

A Valleys’ Initiative for Adult Education (VIAE) and European Community (ERGO 2) Coalfields Community Campaign report, sponsored by Gwent TEC and Mid Glamorgan TEC.
