There are a number of CISWO Social Groups which meet across the South Wales Coalfield area. CISWO Social Groups provide social activities and support for ex-miners and their spouses/partners. The groups aim to provide a welcoming and fun environment for older people living in ex coal-mining communities who may face feelings of isolation and social exclusion.
