Antur Waunfawr is a leading social enterprise providing employment and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities in their own community.
The establishment of Antur Waunfawr in 1984 stemmed from the vision of R. Gwynn Davies, and the strong support he received from the people of the Waunfawr area. By now, it is a leading social enterprise providing employment and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities in their own community.
35 years ago, a charitable company such as Antur Waunfawr, which offered people with learning difficulties proper work with a purpose to it, was seen as pioneering. Prior to that, people received care and work in special centres. Antur Waunfawr demonstrated that, by giving them the chance of working in the community, and thus serving the community, they would be accepted as equal citizens.
Over the years, the company has developed, and now employs more than 100 staff and supports over 65 adults with learning difficulties.
Roedd sefydlu Antur Waunfawr yn 1984 yn deillio o weledigaeth R. Gwynn Davies, a’r gefnogaeth gref a gafodd gan bobl ardal Waunfawr. Erbyn hyn, mae’n fenter gymdeithasol arloesol sy’n darparu cyfleoedd cyflogaeth a hyfforddiant i bobl ag anableddau dysgu yn eu cymunedau eu hunain.
35 mlynedd yn ôl, ystyrid bod cwmni elusennol fel Antur Waunfawr, a oedd yn cynnig gwaith go-iawn i bobl ag anawsterau dysgu, yn torri tir newydd. Cyn hynny, roedd pobl yn arfer cael gwaith a gofal mewn canolfannau arbennig. Mae Antur Waunfawr yn dangos bod rhoi cyfle iddynt weithio a gwasanaethu'r gymuned yn golygu eu bod yn gallu cael eu derbyn fel dinasyddion cyfartal.
Dros y blynyddoedd, mae’r cwmni wedi datblygu, ac erbyn hyn mae’n cyflogi dros 100 o staff ac yn cefnogi dros 65 o oedolion sydd ag anawsterau dysgu.
Safeguarding a person's rights is important, but it is much more important to make sure they can play their part. It is our moral duty to make sure that our fellow citizens are able to take on that responsibility, whatever their abilities. - R. Gwynn Davies - Antur's Founder

I had never heard of this company until Google I was very impressed with their background and company ethics. I contacted them to collect clothes had response within the hour came this morning driver very polite and helpful please if you want to recycle use them.
This is my first time using this organisation and I was satisfied with their service. This was suitable for me as I am working and would not be able to drop clothes at shops, so having someone picking up the clothes was convenient. Thank you for this free service and would like to donate again.
I received a reply from Daryl on the day I emailed and a collection date the next day! Collection was prompt! Daryl answered any questions I asked by email within the hour. Highly recommend using this company!
Great service, very easy to arrange collection. Collection team were polite and professional and respectful of my property. Highly recommended.
Contacted Thursday, and collected 6 bin bags of clothes the following Monday when they said they would! (Could have picked an earlier collection but this suited me). Fantastic service for a worthy cause. Thank you so much, will definitely be using again, have recommended to friend's and family.
Collection was arranged promptly and the driver was friendly, punctual, and efficient. Very happy with how the process from start to finish was quick and easy. Fantastic service.
I Have used this service on a couple of occasions and have found from booking the collection to pick up on the date arranged to be outstanding! The staff in the office and drivers are professional and extremely helpful. I could choose from a number of charity’s to support I would highly recommend this company and will most definitely use again throughout the year!
I had a lot of clothes that needed collecting, collect my clothes were very efficient, polite and courteous. The collection was booked for the following day and was done completely contact free. I am pleased the clothes will get reused and contribute to raising funds for charity. Win win! Would highly recommend, thank you!
Pickup was arranged very quickly and I could select the charity I wanted my donation to go to. The driver rang prior to picking up to let me know when he'd be here. Very professional. Being disabled I cant travel out so this was a great option to allow me to donate my clothes etc.
