The Future Regeneration of Grangetown (FROG Community Forum) was established in 1996 when Grangetown was awarded Government Single Regeneration Budget. FROG was formed by a group of active residents to continue the Regeneration of Grangetown post SRB. It is managed by a profoundly committed group of local volunteer, resident directors who reflect the diverse nature of the community and thus possess a keen insight into the problems that affect Grangetown people. FROG became a registered Charity and Company Ltd by Guarantee in 1999, a Development Trust in 2005 and is designated the Community Anchor organisation for the area.
Our main purpose is to enhance the day-to-day lives of local people by: promoting social inclusion, cultivating social enterprise, creating employment opportunities, facilitating and expanding local learning and training opportunities and designing, developing and delivering a wide range of neighbourhood-based social, economic and environmental initiatives. FROG organisation aims to actively encourage and support widespread community participation, increase the number of active volunteers and; reinvigorate community pride through which a sustainable, stronger local community can be achieved.
