Our Befriending service is for Black and Minority Ethnic people in Cardiff who are experiencing social isolation due to mental ill health or need short-term support, possibly around a specific issue.
Community Champions and Peer Support
To assist the delivery of outreach training and engagement sessions in community venues and with BME community groups in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan to raise awareness of mental ill health, promote mental well-being and promote our services.
Service User and Carer Forum and Steering Group Members Diverse Cymru is committed to having the Service User’s voice at the heart of our organisation. We are looking to recruit and train people to ensure the BME experience is considered in Mental Health and Social Care provision, including our own services, as well as to future service developments and Cardiff and Vale UHB consultations. So, if you are a service user, or a carer from the BME community, we would value your experiences and expertise in service provision.
We have many requests for the opinions of the BME service users, ranging from recruitment panels for Social Care degrees, to becoming a trustee. Training and support is available to ensure the BME voice is represented in the health and social care system.
