Who is LCDP? We are are a community development organisation, which is a registered charity. We are a not for profit community hub that has been delivering quality, fun, educational services in the community for 27 years. We provide early intervention family support services offering early years childcare, holiday childcare and out of school provisions all year round. We support youth activities as well as community education and adult peer support projects. We assist with wellbeing and mental health; and provide a warm safe space to meet for a cuppa and a warm affordable meal.

Our team of staff and volunteers are friendly, local, welcoming and specialists in the services they offer. LCDP meet national standards, adhering to government guidance and legislation.

Our services now offer extended provisions in a variety of locations and community buildings throughout Llanharan, Brynna, Bryncae and Llanilid.


LCDP was established 27 years ago by a group of local volunteers led by Gill Richards and Stella Harry. This group of volunteers was instrumental in securing funding to purchase the old Arcadia Billiard Hall on Bridgend Road in Llanharan offering a safe place for young people to congregate and meet friends with qualified youth worker on hand for support.

The Arcadia Billiard hall remains to be our home, and we now have over  40 employees and volunteers. We have a team of volunteers who are the  trustees  of the LCDP charity and they support the staff team. Together, staff and volunteers plan and implement services in the community aiming to meet individual  and community needs.
