About Our Training

GROW Cymru is an organisation that works with individuals and groups in the community that are deemed “hard to reach” and “disadvantaged” by society.  Our ethos is to encourage and facilitate the personal development of the individual whilst at the same time encouraging them to choose the right path and transform their lives.

Our workshops allow each person to fully investigate their own personal potential and aspirations towards becoming financially independent and break the benefits trap, by integrating personal development, life management and business.

Our main objective is to work with people facing the biggest barriers – women, young people, lone parents, people with disabilities, victims of domestic abuse, black and minority ethnic communities, people on long-term benefits, offenders and ex-offenders and their families and those struggling with financial issues.

We treat everyone as an equal.  Society labels people as disadvantaged, hard-to-reach or marginalised, but these individuals, our clients are often:

  • Lonely and isolated
  • Lack social connections
  • Unable to find their way through the system, and
  • Don’t engage with mainstream organisations simply because these organisations are part of “the establishment”.

Our innovative programme of workshops threads personal development and life management skills through to job employment skills, and “hands-on” enterprise and business skills training.

Our primary focus is on the individual person– we put people first, and our philosophy is to provide advice, support and encouragement to help participants take positive action for themselves “we do what it says on the tin”.

What we can do for you:

Is this you?

  • I’m fed up just looking at the same four walls…..
  • I’ve forgotten who I really am….
  • I keep asking myself – “How did I get here?”
  • I haven’t got any confidence and I just can’t…….
  • I don’t fit in – and they don’t care…
  • ….and I want to do something about it.

If it sounds like you then WE CAN HELP!   We provide workshops and training to help you get your life “back on track”.  We don’t bite and we won’t tell anyone you called – let’s just have a chat and see what we can do.  We have a whole range of short courses to help you learn more about yourself, explore the possibilities and tap into the real you.


  • Sort out what’s really important to you
  • Get more confidence, and
  • Start on the road to financial independence.

We are not trying to change you, we just want to show you there is a different way to go about things – and give you the tools, techniques and support to help you make the right decision for you.

“All of our workshops run over eight sessions, three hours per session that’s 24 hours in total.  So….. if you give us one day of your life – We’ll help you change the rest of it”
