Stories of Change within the BAME community by Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel
17th January rom 9.30 – 1pm at Temple of Peace, Cathays Park, CF10 3AP.
The event is part of NextGen project funded by Big Lottery and delivered by Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel (SSAP) in partnership with Choice and Control Consortium (CCC). Usha Ladwa-Thomas is one of the team from CCC. The Next Gen Activists Change Programme utilises the lived experiences as strengths to the local activists and leaders from the BAME community who want to make a positive change to their communities and to act with power and authenticity. It is intended to empower and enable strong leadership skills for those who rarely get the opportunity for high quality training in leadership.
On this day, you will be joined by participants from the project and a few members from the community. This half day session will focus on hearing stories of change from three experienced BAME leaders and as partners with Welsh Government, in delivering this programme we have invited
