Keen participation at Welsh refugee consultation event

A wonderful turnout at last week’s consultation event. The Welsh refugee council kindly provided an opportunity for people to express their concerns and ideas. This was greatly valued by the participants.

I am happy to have the opportunity to talk about the problems my family face in a way that we feel comfortable and safe.

There were many important areas discussed and the general feeling that although things can’t be improved immediately it was comforting to know that this will help people in the future.

Many thanks to the Welsh refugee council for providing the chance for people to be heard – it was greatly valued.

Very well done to our wonderful translators who ultimately allowed those without English language skills to have their say and to understand discussions.

Further gratitude goes to Hannah from Swansea city of Sanctuary for her kind help.
