Fresh and Crucial With Meic in 2019

We’ve had a great time meeting with lots of you at schools and colleges across Wales over the last few months. We wanted to take this opportunity to say how great it’s been meeting with you all.

We get to talk to lots of young people by phone, text or instant message on the helpline, so it’s always great to get out and meet with some of you face to face and letting lots more children and young people in Wales know about Meic and how we can help.

Keeping it fresh

In September we attended Fresher’s Fairs at some of the colleges and Universities in Wales, meeting with new students and letting them know how Meic can be there to help them. Struggling with your studies? Worried about the choices you made and not happy with your course? Feeling the strain because of exams? Meic can help you with all of these things.

Crucial Crews

We’ve also met with thousands of you in Crucial Crew events, joining organisations like the Fire Service, St John’s and the Police to inform year 7’s about how to keep safe, and which services can help. It’s been great meeting with you all, listening and answering all your questions.

We’ve had a brand new video produced for us to use in the Crucial Crew events this year, and it’s been going down well. A draft version was created to begin with which we tested at the first Crucial Crew events. We asked for feedback and the final version has been produced by ProMo-Cymru with Talar Rhys-Dillon and Solly Walters from Ysgol Sant Curig, Barry, doing a fantastic job providing the voiceovers. We still have a lot of Crucial Crew events coming up in the New Year, so look forward to showing our new video to lots more year 7’s across Wales.
