Building Bridges – Here to Listen

Building Bridges Launch

Barnardo’s Cymru Seraf Service in association with the Cardiff Council Cultural Scheme, The Arts Council of Wales, Valley and Vale Community Arts, the Welsh Government and South Wales Police and Bawso, would like to invite you to an event entitled ‘Building Bridges – Here to Listen’.

This event which is sponsored by Deputy Minister for Health Vaughan Gething, AM, will be held on Tuesday 3rd February 2015 from 11:00am until 1pm at the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay, Cardiff CF10 4PZ.

This event will include music, dance and drama by young people around their experiences of growing up, their relationships, and the dangers of sexual exploitation.

As part of our ‘Building Bridges’ project funded by Cardiff Council we will take the play ‘What’s Happening Frankie?‘ to schools in the community in order to raise awareness of sexual exploitation; to listen and to improve dialogue between young people, education, health and social care, professionals and the police. Following the performance young actors in their role will be able to answer questions the audience might have.

As part of this special event policy makers and professionals will form part of a discussion group where young people can ask questions and openly talk about safeguarding issues and barriers to accessing support services. We warmly invite you to come along and join us in hearing the voices of young people from across Wales.
