Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website of CATCH, Cwmtawe Action To Combat Hardship.
CATCH is an independent charity, based in Cwmtawe, which provides emergency food packs and other support to those in need.
Hardship, deprivation and poverty persist in our communities. Many of us are vulnerable to some sudden crisis.
CATCH exists to provide help people in Cwmtawe struggling to keep a home together and feed their family, as those in work and those without work face the most sustained attack on welfare and community support for three generations or more.
CATCH was formed in Ystalyfera, but chose to reference itself as Cwmtawe to acknowledge the complicated overlap of communities and local authorities around the confluence of the Tawe and the Twrch. It is an independent voluntary organisation.
CATCH runs a food bank, and a basics bank, – including non-edible household items, bedding and clothing. We also have a school uniform exchange, with items for most local schools.
Food packs are normally issued against a voucher given out by e.g. a social worker, a school, a GP practice, a housing association.
If you are a professional in any of these fields, and think you could be a referrer for CATCH, please get in touch through the Contact link.
