Town Council Sponsored Bodies
Each year the Council issues grant funding to various local community organisations. In some cases, local groups can take over the Council's responsibilities, for example, Menter Aberystwyth deal with the town's tourism.
Menter Aberystwyth is a regeneration partnership for Aberystwyth and its surrounding area. Their website can be found on http://www.menter-aberystwyth.org.uk/. Community Regeneration builds on the ethos of community and simply means that the people living in a defined area take direct actions to address issues affecting their community rather than have solutions imposed upon them.
