Edition of Grange Community News published in Winter 2003. An article on page three explains that Grangetown Community Concern is moving to temporary offices at Buzz Information Centre on Penarth road after 20 years at Clydach Street Day Centre. Their former home (previously the YMCA building) was leased by the council but has now been sold. It was hoped to move into a new all-in-one community centre at Havelock Place, but work on that has not yet started. The article states that “about 45 people regularly have lunch at the centre plus 10 meals are taken to the elderly by volunteers of Grangetown Community Concern”.

The site is now Grangetown Library which was converted to a Hub in 2016, and is the home of Grangetown Community Concern.

Grange Community News is a community newspaper produced by Grangetown Community Concern. Grangetown Community Concern is a voluntary group, partly funded by Cardiff Council but almost entirely run by volunteers. It was established in 1977 and is a registered charity. The group was set up as an umbrella group for other voluntary organisations with its aims and objectives to provide and encourage services for all age groups, with a particular focus on older people.

The group organises the week-long Grangetown Festival in June. It also organised lunches and trips for older people, and produced a quarterly local newspaper. The organisation has awarded community cups to children from local primary schools who have shown community spirit and has also been responsible for arranging an annual carol service.

The group was renamed Grangetown Community Action in 2014.
