Llanellitown.com is a social enterprise or not for profit enterprise set up by volunteers from Llanelli with the aims of:

We are independent of the County and local Councils, non political and run by volunteers.
How are we run?
We are a private company limited by guarantee and not having a share capital (our company number is 06737296). This means that if we make any profits, the directors and any shareholders donâ€™t receive a penny.Â Â Instead, any profits are re-invested into the aims of the enterprise.
We are governed by a constitution or memorandum and articles of association and day to day affairs are carried out by a board of directors and our volunteers. We have 2 types of membership, please click the links to see our Community and Corporate members.

How are we funded?
Contrary to what you might think, we recieve no funding from County or Local Councils and are independant of them.Â The guiding principle behind the company is sustainability.
