Thriving Communities is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company with a mission to create positive, healthy, happy and thriving communities throughout South Wales.
We are a group of well-being and positive psychology ambassadors who passionately care about helping and serving others and are supported by a dedicated team of volunteers
The company was founded in September 2021, but grew rapidly end of 2022 when founding directors Mel Jones and Claire Bellavia decided to bring on board two further directors: Dr Manmeet Kaur, a GP who is Practice Manager at Pengam surgery in Blackwood and who has championed the Mind and Body Wellness Programme, and Esther Apoussidis, an holistic therapist and Energy Alignment Method mentor, who is an expert in creating positive energy flow and living in alignment with your higher self. For personal reasons Claire stepped down as Director in July 2023. And most recently, in September 2023, Sandra Brown joined as a fourth Executive Director to lend her financial expertise and her passionate interest in breath to heal the body and mind.
