Welcome to Connect to Purpose

We are a start-up charity with big ambitions – to rescue and restore a C12th Manor house and set it up as a retreat for disadvantaged young people and their families, for rest and renewal.

Plas Llanmihangel is one of the oldest homes in Wales, and we intend to restore it as a safe and tranquil retreat where young people who are struggling with life’s challenges may come with their families. Here they may experience rest and renewal of wellbeing in a comfortable and beautifully presented house, to commune with nature deep in the Vale of Glamorgan countryside close to the coast, and be inspired by the medieval heritage of their local community to nurture a sense of their own identity and belonging.

We now hope to purchase Treguff Place as a retreat operated by our young people aged 16-25. See 'Our S.I.R.L Project.'

We are really fortunate to have the charismatic interior designer and TV personality, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, on board with us, taking part in our crowdfunding launch and supporting our mission. 

"Now is the time to start saying to everyone, we have got an idea that will make a big change but it's actually asking a small thing from you; all we need from you is a little bit of money, to just start greasing these wheels, which means that we can start to create this vision of, as I say, brand Plas Llanmihangel."
