Improving Our Service - Invitation to a Discussion Group on 14th May

Improving Our Service

Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council are looking for a group of people who receive (or care for someone who receives) care and support from Social Services in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, to take part in discussion groups to help us improve our service. 

We want them to tell us what they think about the care and support they have received and to share their ideas about how we can make things better. 

Every year we publish a report that tells people what we have done in Social Services and how we have performed. We would like to know what you think about it and if you agree with what we are saying. Our report also sets out our priorities for the coming year, and we want you to tell us if you agree with what we think is important. 

The discussion group will take place on the morning of the 14th May. An organisation called Tempo will be helping us with the workshop, and as a thank you for taking part, you will be given Time Credits. 

How do I get involved?

If you would like to take part in our discussion groups, please respond by e-mail before days end of  8th May 2019 to:

Serious Violence Prevention Project Fund

Police and Crime Commissioners in Wales are working in partnership to deliver a funding programme (June 2019 – March 2020) to explore youth work approaches to early intervention and prevention as part of the Early Intervention Youth Fund.

The Fund aims to provide support for early intervention and prevention programmes that:

• Deliver services to support and prevent young people from getting involved in crime by supporting positive activities.

• Deliver positive outcomes for young people, focused on addressing risk factors linked to serious violence.

• Build on, and develop, our understanding of what works in practice for tackling these risks factors.

• Drive improved local, multi-agency partnership working; and most crucially, reduce the levels of serious violence and crime.

We are looking to fund projects mainly working with 11-18 year olds but will consider projects with young people aged up to 25 years, who may be at risk of criminal involvement, as victims and/or perpetrators.

You can find the guidlines and application forms (English and Cymraeg) here

The Deadline for applications is 17th May 2019.

Knife Free Campaign 

The Home Office has launched the next phase of the #knifefree campaign. The campaign, originally launched in March 2018, aims to change the attitudes and behaviours of young people aged between 10 – 21 years by highlighting stories of those who have chosen not to carry a knife.

Through feedback from partners and young people we have refreshed our campaign materials for spring 2019. The new campaign films, posters, social media and radio adverts place greater emphasis on tackling the perception that all young people carry knives.


We would really appreciate your support in encouraging young people to go knife free by directing them to this website -


Links to campaign assets that can be used to support the campaign in your local area, such as case study videos, posters and social media channels, can be found here. It also has resources, such as lesson plans, for people who work directly with young people.
