Our Welsh office held their Annual Review event at the Cardiff City Stadium highlighting our progress in Wales over the last year.
Around 50 special guests attended our event at the CCS to view presentations by our staff members in Wales about our work and developments over the last year.
As the guests arrived many took the time to view our information stand that featured photos of our work in Wales over the year and quotes from young people and teaches across Wales, along with some concerning incidents that have been reported to us with the challenges we face in Wales.
Sanjiv Vedi opened the event and welcomed the audience for what was a successful occasion.
Simon Richards delivered a presentation on our most successful year of educational workshops and teacher training, providing some outstanding statistical data and opinions of young people that have changed due to our workshops.
Simon then introduced Martine Coles and Councillor Janice Charles from the Vale of Glamorgan Council. They spoke about how our partnership has had an impact on their young people in the VOG schools and the benefits of the Council funding our organisation. They urged other funders and supporters to do so in their constituency.
Campaign Worker Jason Webber gave an overview of our events with clubs across Wales and our most successful Fortnight of Action ever; He spoke about the developments we are working towards in Wales including the expansion of our club events to include lower league clubs and our continuation of Social Inclusion at grassroots.
Jason introduced our guest speaker Gareth Bennet from the SMART Project in Carmarthen. Gareth spoke about workshops we have been holding at their PRU and the influence and impact it has had on the young people that attend.
Campaign manager Sunil Patel finished the event by thanking our funders and outlining the challenges we face in the coming months.
