Croeso Abergwaun

Croeso teams are working with Hiraeth Hope in West Wales to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis in a civilised sustainable way - with human faces, not beaurocracy. Hiraeth Hope is a member of Citizens Cymru/ Citizens UK, working with the Home Office.

The Croeso Abergwaun project began to make plans in Spring of 2016 to welcome up to three Syrian families to Fishguard  The great news is that the first family has now arrived and has received a very warm welcome from the community.  We wish them every success in adapting to life here in West Wales.

We have the support of the Home Office who are managing the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme, and Pembrokeshire County Council (who themselves are about to resettle their first family). We are also working with three other 'Croeso' groups who have established themselves in Haverfordwest, Cardigan and Narberth.

Although Syria comes and goes from the front pages of the press, the crisis for its people continues. 

Croeso Abergwaun and Croeso Arberth have, between them, secured some funding through the Arwain Sir Benfro/LEADER Pembrokeshire fund, which will be very beneficial in helping us to deliver things like English language training to our resettlement family.  Many thanks to PLANED, who administer the fund.
