Celebrating Pride Cymru

2nd September 2022

I was delighted to attend Pride Cymru in Cardiff last weekend to celebrate our LGBTQ+ communities.

Although we have come a long way, more needs to be done to challenge the prejudice and discrimination faced by LGBTQ+ people.  

Through my Police and Crime Plan I have committed to ensuring that the principles of equality and diversity are at the very heart of both my office and Gwent Police. I also provide funding towards specialist support for LGBTQ+ residents who are victims of crime.

Umbrella Cymru, our partner based within the Connect Gwent victim’s hub, provides emotional and practical support, advice and information to LGBTQ+ people of all ages who have experienced crime or anti-social behaviour.

If you have experienced crime or anti-social behaviour and need to speak to someone contact Connect Gwent on 0300 123 2133. Alternatively, you can contact Umbrella Cymru directly on 0300 302 3670 or visit www.umbrellacymru.co.uk for full contact details.
