History of Dynamix

The origins of Dynamix

Dynamix started with two friends. They shared a belief in using the power of play and co-operation to develop people's abilities to work creatively. The organisation was originally set up with the support of a Co-operative Development Agency (West Glamorgan CODA). The two newly qualified community development workers (Phill Burton and Pete Duncan) brought their shared experience of play, circus and mental health together to run training, consultation and marketing with a new twist (or two).

As the work of the company grew so did the membership and within 4 years the core had grown to 5 directors with many more associated trainers. As more workers joined Dynamix the breadth and depth of the work increased with a policy of making new methods, taking on and developing new themes and trying out new subject areas. The office base moved from a back room in Phill's house, to offices in Salubrious Passage (our most popular address name to date) and culminated in the move to buying our current home, Unit 4D in Hafod.


The core values have remained and the belief that we can pass on techniques, skills and understanding has been substantiated by a huge number and range of clients. Dynamix has grown organically by word of mouth and has developed a reputation for providing fascinating and creative but most importantly, effective solutions to tackling serious issues.
