There is a lot of great stuff already happening in Swansea. We are a City of Sanctuary, proud to be a Home Office dispersal city for refugees and asylum seekers. We are a Dementia Friendly city. We are a World Health Organisation Healthy City. We are a UNESCO City of Learning. Swansea Council has also embedded the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into the way we set our policies.
On 10 December, Human Rights Day, Swansea’s Public Service Board along with other key stakeholders of the region will be launching our intention to become a Human Rights City along with a 12 month action plan on how we will get there.
