Community Service

The Community Service engages students in some of the most central aspects of a UWC education. Students help make a difference to the lives of others and do so with a sense of empathy for the disadvantaged and a respect for human rights and personal dignity. This includes working with the elderly, refugees, children from disadvantaged home backgrounds and children and adults with mental and physical disabilities. Students provide therapy through music and the Arts. Students participate in weekly activities including Amnesty International, United World Schools, Voluntary Services Overseas, Fair trade and Make Poverty History.

Students from this service are engaged in supporting the refugee community in Cardiff with several weekly sessions with OASIS, a refugee and asylum seeker centre in Cardiff, and Lynx House Centre for asylum seekers. Sessions include general English lessons, English lessons for refugee women, and support for families and children. Students also visit local schools to support international perspectives and promote diversity.
