Creating a fairer Britain
Croeso is a project celebrating the diverse people and cultures of Wales. It works with a broad range of organisations to promote understanding of language, faith, community and inclusion. Diversity is something to celebrate as our different cultures, languages and faiths make up the Wales we live in today.
Wales has a proud tradition of welcoming individuals and groups into its communities. Croeso aims to promote discussion and empathy between different community groups, which will promote understanding and help us all to celebrate the benefits of an integrated, diverse Wales.
It is with great sadness we announce that the Croeso Project will terminate on the 30/10/2009.
The project has run for 4 years and has been successful in reaching out to 1000’s of young people helping them to understand and celebrate diversity and equality.
Some of the projects biggest achievements include helping Gypsy and Travellers in Wales to be treated equally, our Your Choice animation competition and workshops and celebrating Black History Month with Newport Council.
Last but not least the jewel in the Croeso crown has been our Peer Led Education sessions for 11-16 year olds where the team discuss current equality issues with the young people and help them to go on to tackle these issues with their peers.
The Croeso team are proud to say we have been on the front line meeting the young people of Wales, finding out what is important to them and helping them to take their important issues forward.
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who had helped and supported us along our journey. It has been a pleasure to work with you all.
Lots of Love
Fiona, Neil and Amanda - the Croeso Team.
