About Us

Caerphilly Miners Centre for the Community (The Miners) was established in 2008 to save part of the former Caerphilly Miners Hospital as a sustainable facility to support the wellbeing of our community.  
It became a company limited by guarantee in 2011 and a charity in 2012.  In 2014, the trustees signed a 99 year lease with United Welsh and set to work to restore the building.  The refurbished ground floor was opened in September 2015.  It provides a pleasant environment within easy reach of people, with good parking facilities and a warm welcome.  
The Miners is owned by its members, shaped by its trustees and volunteers and used by the people of Caerphilly.  People are able to access affordable services and gain the experience of helping others. There is common purpose in making a positive difference to people’s well-being whatever their age or circumstances and partnership working to ensure the best possible provision for our community.
