Be Active RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taff) is a health and wellbeing project and we offer support to become more active, improve your health, understand nutrition and increase wellbeing.
We offer many activities – from yoga, Pilates, drama, dance, walking groups, exercise and gardening for beginners. There’s something for everyone, including all ages and all fitness levels.
We work across RCT together with Interlink, Spectacle Theatre, Volunteering Matters, Active Nutrition, Cambrian Village Trust and Welcome To Our Woods.

Get Connected is our digital skills project which offers help for tenants who are interested in learning and becoming confident online.
We’ll be working with Phoenix Initiative who can offer over the phone support while you learn more about your digital device and the internet. We can also supply you with a digital tablet and data allowance, as part of our loan scheme.
We know that a webpage isn’t the best way to promote a digital skills project and we will be promoting Get Connected in other ways. If you or someone you know would like to send emails, order your groceries online or stay in touch with loved ones but don’t know where to start, we can help!
If you want to take part, please contact the Get Involved team on 01443 424200 or email Getinvolved@rhawales.com
Get Skilled is our project to assist tenants and community members with building new skills and gaining work experience.
We can offer a wide range of work experience from things like customer services, carpentry and community work. We also work with our partners to offer opportunities in construction skills.
If you want to know more, want to volunteer with or want to refer someone you can contact us directly at Getinvolved@rhawales.com or call the Get Involved team on 01443 424200.
We are working in partnership with Welcome To Our Woods in Treherbert to reconnect people with place – that means connecting communities with their natural environment, like our beautiful woodlands and mountain tops.
Welcome To Our Woods aims to improve health and wellbeing through offering activities in our outdoor spaces and assisting people with gaining skills for work – such as food growing and forestry management.
Our partnership had continued to grow, and we were recently successful in securing £238,750 through the National Lottery Climate Action Fund. Part of this funding will be used to explore ways of building experimental, zero‐emission homes using local timber from local forests. We plan to use these homes to showcase the need and potential for modern, energy-efficient family housing, as well as the opportunity this can offer for local employment and skills.
