TGP Cymru were pleased to be part of the celebrations of the UNCRC 30th Anniversary celebrations on November 20th 2019.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a legally-binding international agreement setting out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of every child, regardless of their race, religion or abilities.

This was a Fashion Show created by young people to promote individuality and keeping children and young people safe. The theme was Incognito – avoiding peer pressure, designer labels and makes to fit in. The young people sourced clothes from local charity shops and upcycled their outfits creatively to walk down the cat walk.

There was a short film played to introduce the project and during the interval the safeguarding rap was shown and a poem written in the words of the young people was read out. The show was played out to a packed audience of children, young people and adults including Sally Holland, the Children’s Commissioner who introduced the show and Jackie Murphy, CEO TGP Cymru who closed the show.

It was an amazing event and the young people were inspirational.

We held a participation day in conjunction with University of South Wales at the Atrium last week. Thanks go to our trustee Emma and the staff and students there who all helped us to make a film about advocacy as well as other activities.

It was made by CYP for other CYP to understand advocacy and how it could help them. Watch this space for our film release date!

TGP Cymru were thrilled to receive a donation of £1,254 from the 5p carrier bag sales from our Charity of the Year partnership with Sainsbury’s Cardiff Bay.

Many grateful thanks go to them for their support.

Preparations are well under way in Aberystwyth for our Fashion Show in April……….sneak previews of what to look forward to!

TGP Cymru’s Junior Safeguarding Children’s Board CADW,  launched a rap about staying safe online, as part of National Safeguarding Week. Young people from Mid and West Wales wrote and produced the rap and hope it will empower young people across Wales to stay safe when online and using social media.

Dave Bound and Mark Jefferis have supported our young people throughout with the technical parts and encouragement in producing the rap.

You can download the lyrics here, and listen to the song below:

Tina and Laura from TGP Cymru’s Restorative Approaches Veterans and Families Service took part in a ‘One Stop Shop’ at Cardiff City Football Ground this week. Run by the Bluebirds Foundation, this provided a great opportunity for any military veterans to drop in and meet with charities and organisations that are there to give support.

TGP Cymru work alongside Veterans NHS Wales in Cardiff and the Vale to support veterans, service leavers and their families around mental health and relationships, supporting the family to move forward.
