The Romani Cultural and Arts Company

Community Arts Tutors

(PER SESSION FEE TO BE NEGOTIATED)

The Romani Cultural & Arts Company are seeking applications from interested people with an arts-arts-based skill / trade to become sessional Community Arts Tutors as part of their Children and Young Peoples Arts Workshop Project on local Gypsy & Traveller sites. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the 3 year project until 2021.

This project is funded by BBC Children In Need.

The project is designed to engage with children on 4 Gypsy and Traveller sites across South Wales over a three year period. Its purpose is to:
1. To support Gypsy and Irish Traveller children to improve their levels of social interaction between the different ethnic GT (Gypsy, Irish Traveller) groups living on caravan sites. This is because Gypsies and Irish Travellers do not have many opportunities to mix and make friends.
2. To support Gypsy and Traveller children to have good self-esteem, be more resilient and feel proud of their cultural heritage and background so that their confidence is less affected by prejudice and / or perceived discrimination.
3. To support Gypsy and Traveller children to feel more confident and resilient in engaging with support agencies and the outside world so that they are encouraged to maintain engagement in purposeful activity and education.


The four sites we work on are: Cwmcrachen, Blaenau Gwent Council; Roverway, Cardiff County Council; Shepherd’s Hill, Torfaen Council; Shirenewton, Cardiff County Council


Community Arts Tutors collaborate with a wide variety of local groups, encouraging the use of artistic activities to support their development and improve their quality of life. Generally, they work in areas where there are social, cultural or environmental issues to be addressed. They use a whole range of art forms to engage with these different community groups, including visual arts, theatre, dance, music, carnival arts and film.
If you are interested, please see our website (www.romaniarts.co.uk) for a Job Description, Personal Specification.

 Unpaid roles:


Cardiff Council

New Independent Members to its Standards & Ethics Committee.

The Standards & Ethics Committee has an important role in promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct of elected members of Cardiff Council and the six Community Councils within its area.  If you value local democracy, have a commitment to public service and have the capacity to be independent, objective and strong-minded, then you may be the right person for this role.

The Committee is comprised of five Independent members, one community councillor and three county councillors.  We currently have two Independent Member vacancies due to one member stepping down and one member coming to the end of their term. Appointments are made for a term of between 4 to 6 years, and may be extended for a further 4-year term.

Members of ethnic minority communities and disabled people are currently under-represented on the Committee, so applications from members of these groups are particularly welcome, although all applications will be considered on merit.

If you are interested visit the Cardiff Council website or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Independent Members of the Standards & Ethics Committee must be wholly unconnected with local government, and there are statutory restrictions to this effect.  The following categories of persons are, by law, ineligible for appointment:

  • current councillors or officers (or the spouse or partner of a councillor or officer) of Cardiff Council or any other local authority, National Park authority, fire authority, or community council; 
  • former councillors or officers of Cardiff Council;  or
  • former councillors or officers of any other local authority, National Park authority, fire authority, or community council, unless the person ceased to hold that position more than 12 months ago

The Beacon Centre

3x Trustee Vacancies

For more than a decade, the Centre has served the local area by providing space for a huge range of activities and services including children’s clubs, youth work, toddler groups, lunch clubs, exercise classes, counselling, training, job clubs and much more. The Centre is home to one of the best nursery childcare settings in the city, a number of small local businesses and several churches.

We are passionate about our community. We recognise the value, energy and worth that lies within each and every person in St Mellons, but we also know there are some complex challenges to overcome.

The Trust has experienced a huge amount of change in the last 12 months. While challenging, our trustees, staff and volunteers are hugely excited at the opportunity that now lies before us. As we enter a period of rebuilding and re-imagining, we’re looking for creative, passionate and committed people to join us in helping to shape our future.

The Trustee role is critical to the success of the Trust, responsible for developing our strategy and ensuring our organisation delivers it. Providing expertise, guidance and governance to a small team that will deliver our vision for a world where St Mellons is known as a place of hope; where people live in physical, mental, social, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.

We are looking for Trustees to join our team who have experience in fundraising and income generation, social enterprise and business development, community engagement and development and human resources. Previous trustee experience would be great, but we’re equally happy for individuals to develop in the role.

We’ll consider applications from all backgrounds, you just need to be as dedicated as we are about supporting people in St Mellons. The Beacon Centre Trust is a Christian charity and aims to promote the Christian faith as a key objective. As such the board reserves the right to hold a majority of seats for active Christians to ensure the delivery of this objective.

We are happy to arrange informal conversations for anyone who wants to find out more about the role. For more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
