Community Events

To enable residents the opportunity to speak directly to the Commissioner and his team, we organise and attend a variety of engagement events to ensure the Commissioner is visible and accessible to the community. 

         

Attending community events provide excellent opportunities for us to inform communities about the role and work of the Commissioner, whilst also encouraging residents to share their feedback with us.

Unfortunately due to the current climate, we have been unable to attend face to face events during 2020/21. However, we look forward to attending future events with our communities.  

Examples of the events we attended during 2019 included: 

Family Fun days in Swansea, Bridgend, Cardiff and Rhondda Cynon Taf. 

We utilised these events to build our understanding of people’s policing priorities and safety concerns.

 

Cardiff Multicultural Mela

We were pleased to sponsor and attend the Cardiff Multicultural Mela, which is an event that showcases a wide diversity of cultures, music, dance, arts, fashion and food in addition to community performances.

999 Emergency Services Weekend.

We joined South Wales Police, South Wales Fire and Rescue and the Welsh Ambulance teams at Cardiff Bay, for a fun filled weekend of activities, demonstrations and displays, promoting the work of the emergency services. 

   

Shirenewton Family Day

The Shirenewton family open day provided us with an opportunity to speak to the gypsy and traveller community about their trust and confidence in the police and their experiences of reporting a crime

Adfest 

We were pleased to be invited to attend the All Wales People’s First ‘Adfest’, which is an annual event for people with learning disabilities. The event provided us with an opportunity to speak to people with learning disabilities about the role of the Commissioner and the work we do to help prevent and reduce crime. 


The open and honest conversations we had with individuals at these events  enabled us to hear first-hand the issues our communities were experiencing and their general views of local policing. This is particularly important for us to understand when the work we do aims to tackle and prevent crime and protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

Feedback gathered from all our engagement activity also helps to inform our scrutiny and oversight of South Wales Police and shapes the development of our policy and project work.
