Aelwyd Cynwyl Elfed
Aelwyd Cynwyl Elfed is a youth organisation for 10 to 25 year olds. It involves group activities, outings, helping in the community, and has some disabled members who are included in all activities. The non profit organisation which has some less able members is run by volunteers who have benefited from the organisation themselves when they were members. They also compete at the Eisteddfod, and they are always learning new skills.
