WELCOME ABOARD, CLARE!
We're really pleased to have a new member on the team: Clare Pritchard is our new Children’s Rights Project Development Officer. This appointment has been made possible thanks to Pen y Cymoedd funding.
“I am passionate about children’s rights and sharing the message to ensure all children and adults know about them. Children have a right to be happy, safe, and feel that they really do matter.” - Clare
Clare will be co-ordinating the activities of the ‘knowURights’ project in the Afan Valley. This innovative and exciting project will involve: educating and empowering children and young people aged 9 to 18 on their rights; developing rights-based initiatives within neighbourhoods; working with communities to embed children’s rights into everyday practice within homes, existing services and the wider community; developing mechanisms to facilitate children and young people’s participation by supporting them to build confidence and skills to empower them to get involved in social structures, develop civic pride and become active citizens.
We're delighted to have Clare on board and would like to thank Pen y Cymoedd again for their generous grant.
