Renew Wales

Renew Wales

The Renew Wales programme has finally come to an end after ten years of supporting communities across Wales to take steps to tackle climate change and become more sustainable.

We want to give a huge thanks to everybody who was involved for engaging with the programme, and we wish you all the best in all your endeavours in these particularly challenging times.

Renew Wales was a programme led by the Development Trusts Association (DTA) Wales and funded by the Dormant Accounts Scheme, administered by the National Lottery Community Fund.



The Co-Design Project – An agenda for the future.

The Co-Design Project was delivered by the Co-Production Network for Wales in partnership with Renew Wales, from September 2020 to November 2021. With involvement and participation at its core, the project brought together over 150 individuals from over 40 organisations: from the Renew Wales Network and the communities they have supported, as well as those completely new to the programme.

Blogs and Case Studies

Here you can view the archive of case studies, blogs and news from Renew Wales.


As part of Renew Wales, we produced five podcast episodes covering topics such as Transport, Waste & the Circular Economy, and Biodiversity. You can still view these podcasts on YouTube.
