The successful community projects at Rodney Parade have been fully embraced by the Dragons. The impact of the regional structure is that the community activities have expanded to incorporate more schools, more clubs and new initiatives. 

The projects have progressed and continue to develop links with educational organisations and the local community, which includes schools, local clubs, businesses and the youngsters of our region. 

We are also proud to be a Dementia Friendly Region having been awarded the Alzheimer’s Society Kitemark in 2017.
