Are you a council tenant of Cardiff Council who is also a disabled person or a person with Black, Asian or any other ethnic minority heritage?
If so, Diverse Cymru, Ethnic Youth Support Team (EYST) and Tai Pawb invite you to free focus groups in Cardiff.
The Wales Audit Office have commissioned us to do this work as part of their review of the Welsh Housing Quality Standards at Swansea and Cardiff Councils.
We would like to speak to disabled or BME tenants specifically because these groups are often under-represented, and this provides an opportunity to ensure that voices from more communities are heard and acted on.
These focus groups are your chance to tell us about your experiences as a Cardiff or Swansea council tenant and your ability to shape the design and delivery of improvements to your home.
Places are limited and must be booked.
Free event. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
You are welcome to bring a support worker, carer or friend with you.
Diverse Cymru will reimburse travel, access, childcare or replacement care costs. Please keep your tickets or receipts and contact us for further details.

What will we do with your views
We will be taking notes at the events.
We will be writing a report based on your experiences and views.
This will be shared between all the partners and will be part of the final reports to Swansea and Cardiff Councils.
All case studies and views will be completely anonymous and will not identify you.
If you are a black or minority ethnic Swansea Council tenant EYST are running a focus group on 18th April in the morning. For further information click here cardiffhousing.eventbrite.co.uk
