We delivered our first Immigration Workshop in Wales to a group from Mencap Cymru.
The group have shown a significant improvement on their attitudes towards people from different backgrounds, races and nationalities.

Team Wales headed up the A470 to deliver a workshop on Immigration to a group from Mencap Cymru with Campaign Manager Sunil Patel facilitating the workshop with support from Clare Skidmore, the session was the first ever one delivered on this high profile issue.
The group from Mencap Cymru had a workshop a few weeks earlier and this was a follow-up session to our Introduction to Racism workshop that was delivered by Aimee Jones.
The workshop included areas of discussion around what we think of when we talk about immigration, the different categories of immigrants, the facts and figures about immigration as well as the positive contributions that immigrates have made to our society.
There was a lot of lively, honest discussion during the activities about immigration and the group engaged really well during the 2 hour workshop. At the end of the session, the group felt more informed about Immigration and more aware of the issues.
Thank you to Mencap Cymru for inviting us to deliver the sessions. The sessions have gone so well that the SRtRC team have been invited back to deliver another session to the group in the near future.
