OUR IMPACT IN THE
ETHNICALLY DIVERSE COMMUNITY
Though 2020 unfolded in ways none of us could have anticipated, we did not lose sight of the magical moments that happened across all our work, leading up to where we are today.
OUR OVERALL IMPACT
Our passionate and enthusiastic team strives to provide the very best of services to our beneficiaries, ensuring that ethnically diverse communities in Swansea and surrounding areas are inspired and empowered to succeed.
Transforming lives of Refugees and Asylum Seekers
We work to provide holistic support to these groups, through services including overall integration support, employment support, well-being and mental health services.
Vulnerable people at the core of our work
We continuously work to tackle poverty and issues of inequality in the communities we serve, through our person-centred approach.
We come to you!
Our service is available to anyone who needs it, and this means we immerse ourselves in our communities.
For the youth by the youth
Our youth services are proudly beneficiary led. We believe young people are experts of what they need, so we give them the tools they need to be empowered.
At the end of our 2019/20 financial year, we are proud to say that The CAE has provided over 1300 one to one services to the ethnically diverse communities across our food bank, core activities, Youth Entrepreneurs Network (YEN) and Inform Young Refugees (IYR) projects.
We are proud of the exponential growth the organisation had the financial year 2020/21. The CAE provided over 2100 one-to-one support services across our projects.
We also became the first organisation to offer free transport services
The year 2021/22 was our best yet, with our teams growing by a whooping 30% to meet the needs of the community, and we managed to provide over 2022 one to one services through our climate action, foodbank and core activities. It had been a successful year.
Our Foodbank delivery service has been running for 2 years. It been a much-needed provision for the families and vulnerable individuals we serve.
We have been able to reach over 750 individuals and families with over 12 tonnes of food during this period.
Our climate Action project broke ground as the first ever offered by a charity catering to ethnically diverse communities in 2021.
Since it's genesis, we have had immense success reaching 272 individuals through a plethora of exciting activities. We also held a competition for students to put forward projects that would contribute to #NetZeroWales and stand a chance to win either £300 or £1000 towards their idea.
In response to the isolation brought about by the pandemic we have increased and diversified our well-being activities to improve the mental and physical wellness of individuals in Swansea.
Over 300 individuals have benefitted from the range of activities offered, and it has had a positive impact on the wellbeing of our community. These include; cycling, football, and well being walks.
We have been able to successfully support 120 people through our job coaching services in the financial year 2021/22.
At our centre, we provide activities, resources and opportunities for those ethnically diverse people who are furthest away from the labour market including:
Mental and physical wellbeing services
Ex-offenders support and reintegration service
Housing and Tenancy support
Access to training
Climate Action initiatives and support
