Jac Lewis Foundation

The Jac Lewis Foundation is a charity to provide support for mental health and wellbeing in the community.

#EinJac #OurJac

The Ammanford community was rocked by the sudden death of Jac and through that grief came a determination on to try and prevent as much as possible losing another member of the community through suicide.
The community drive and passion allowed the foundation on to become a reality.
Set up to provide easy access to free professional counselling at the heart of the community for any age and any issue. Local builders and businesses came together to build the ‘Wellbeing Centre’ which is located on Ammanford Football Pitch with no cost to the foundation. It was so humbling to see so many give up their time to ensure that the dream of the foundation on and the ability to help others was achieved. The drive and commitment of the local Ammanford community supported by Ammanford Football Club continues to be outstanding and has enabled the foundation on to grow into a service that is now providing counselling and support throughout Wales to children and adults that otherwise would be unable to access counselling and support.

Thank you to all that support us to continue this very valuable work.
