A Credu / Believe Project
Believe/ Credu Project participants and staff after attending and completing the course First Introduction to Public Services Interpreting via Cardiff University, Widening Access reflected on how they could continue to develop and access peer support and mentoring during the challenge of the first wave of the Pandemic and Lockdown in March 2020.
This led to a Funding application made to the Community Foundation For Wales to create a post for a Coordinator and funds to continue to develop the group by introducing both Interpreting as a skill and the other knowledge needed to consider running a business or self employment using the skills acquired.
Michele was recruited to co-ordinate the scheme and the PDF below outlines the process and delivery.Lets-Interpret-Apr-Sept-2020-FINAL
