About Llais y Goedwig

Llais y Goedwig is proud to be the voice of community woodlands in Wales. We are a 300 member strong grassroots network. Llais y Goedwig aims to represent & support community groups & practitioners across Wales.


Keeping in touch with community woodland groups

Community woodland groups are active all across Wales – the Llais y Goedwig network enables groups to be in touch with each other, to share experience and resources, to hear the latest news, to help each other solve problems and to engage in policy development.

The network also enables emerging groups to find out more about community woodlands and the help that is on offer. New groups are often keen to find out where community woodland groups are located across Wales – to find a local group look at the Llais y Goedwig members map.

The network is becoming a ‘hub’ of information, news and contacts for anyone interested in community woodlands in Wales. Read the latest news from network members on the community woodlands events listings.

Meet the Network Coordinator

The Llais y Goedwig Network Coordinator, funded by Natural Resources Wales, hosts the community woodland network from the Forestry Hub [1] in Machynlleth.

You can contact Llais y Goedwig through  Liz Mutch, the Coordinator, by email, phone, letter, social media, or at any Llais y Goedwig network event.
