Working with partners is key to our success. We work closely with groups in our local communities plus statutory and voluntary agencies which give us a national reach.
RESOLVEit and Moondance became sponsors of the Snow dogs: Tails in Wales project for Tŷ Hafan, producing our own snow dog called “RESOLVED” designed by George!
For ten weeks between 16 September and 26 November 2017, a pack of Snow dogs were unleashed onto city streets, iconic buildings, open spaces and across the Vale as part of an extraordinary public art trail.
The money raised from Snow dogs: Tails in Wales went to Tŷ Hafan to allow them to continue providing care and support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families throughout Wales. At the Live Auction, £121,300 was raised a truly staggering amount.
TESCO GROUND WORKS
AWARDS FOR ALL
National Lottery Awards for All will fund activities that benefit the community.
The aims of this project focused on PSHE education; developing the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to keep children healthy, safe, and prepared for life and work in modern Britain.
February 2019 we were at Glan yr Afon Primary School delivering the Children’s Defender workshop, thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund.
The National Lottery Community Fund has three funding priorities.
Bringing people together and building strong relationships in and across communities improving the places and spaces that matter to communities enabling more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
Tesco community grants fund thousands of local projects, that bring benefits to the community, right across the UK.
February 2018 we delivered our Children’s Defender workshop to pupils in year 5 at Llanedeyrn Primary School and year 6 at St Albans RC Primary School as part of TESCO Groundworks fund.
Alongside this, we trained some of the staff at these schools to ensure the school community benefit from having this workshop as means to pass on vital personal safety and anti-bullying awareness to the rest of the school and in the future.
the millennium stadium charitable trust
The Trust provides financial support to inspiring projects throughout Wales.
The Trust was established through an agreement between The Millennium Stadium plc and the Millennium Commission. The Trust’s income is generated through a levy on every ticket purchased for public events at the Stadium.
The Trust is an independent Charitable Foundation and is administered by a board of voluntary Trustees. Trustees are selected throughout Wales and represent varying worlds of sport, the community, business, youth groups, the arts and the environment.
The Trust is an all-Wales organisation and regardless of the public event being held at the Stadium, all funds distributed by the Trust are spent in Wales.
We were able to deliver our Children's Defender workshop to Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Pen-Y-Groes, Cefn Primary and Craig yr Hesg Primary thanks to The Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust (MSCT).
Co-op Local Community Fund helped to fund our Children’s Defender programme and offer it to eight primary schools and their local communities.
BIG IDEAS WALES
Big Ideas ‘role models’ are real business people with interesting, inspiring stories that capture the imagination of young people and communicate honestly the realism of being their own boss.
They pass on their passion for creativity and success and help young people think positively about their own future.
Role models are required to prepare an Inspirational Workshop which they will deliver to young people, typically aged between 13-24 years old, at scheduled events and classes within an educational or community setting.
Lauren Seager-Smith, National Co-ordinator of the Anti-Bullying allowance said, “‘we want all of our children to live happy, fulfilled lives without fear of bullying.
The Children’s Defender workshop is a powerful tool to empower children or adults in the face of a physical attack. All of us – whether children or adults can benefit from learning these simple techniques.”
Summer 2017 the RESOLVEit team had a great time at the Street Games event at the Principality Stadium Cardiff.
Great to see so many children actively joining in the fun activities.
We were at CCYP (Cwmbran Centre for Young People) for Bron Afon's Go Girls event, talking to females from age 15 upwards about their experiences, safety tips and awareness as being a key factor in keeping themselves safe. We also taught some self-defence techniques that are effective regardless of size difference, strength and agility.
The session was enjoyed by all, some of the feedback we received;
'empowering' 'great. Perfect information' 'life-changing, I love it'
