SUCCESSFUL FUNDING BID – PEN Y CYMOEDD

SUCCESSFUL FUNDING BID – PEN Y CYMOEDD

The CRU are both proud and delighted to have been awarded this significant amount of funding by Pen y Cymoedd to deliver the KnowURights project across the Afan Valley over the next three years. Children and young peoples’ enshrined rights are generally poorly understood, both by them and the adults in their lives. This very important project will ensure that Afan Valley communities work together across the generations to address this. Essentially it will release the huge potential we know our children and young people possess to make a real difference for the future as it will embed the confidence to speak up knowing they will, in line with their rights under the UNCRC, be listened to. This in turn will have long term benefits for their communities as they will be equipped with the knowledge and information they need to assist them in becoming competent citizens who are fully engaged and involved in making decisions and suggesting changes that can benefit all.”
