A very warm welcome to Stepheni Kays who is joining the City of Sanctuary UK team as our new Wales Coordinator.
Stepheni has worked in various roles in the third sector to promote a culture of welcome and hospitality and to improve the provision of information and service delivery for people seeking sanctuary in Wales. This has included working in the NHS to build relationships between people seeking sanctuary, host communities and decision makers; and to address health inequalities and to improve access to health services.
Stepheni has a Bachelor degree in Humanities and Social studies, and an MA in Development and Human Rights.
She has volunteered with Swansea City of Sanctuary as a mentor and worked as an Integration officer and Development Officer on their ‘Welcome to Swansea’ and ‘Better Welcome to Swansea’ projects, and as management committee member for a short period.
Stepheni believes that given the right opportunities and support, everyone has the capacity to live an empowered life.
