About Us

THE COMMUNITY SPACE PARTNERSHIP is a partnership of eight community groups formed as a response for the need to provide a central venue that will enable those (mainly) refugee and migrant communities to meet, to carry out separate or joint project work and to share information, experience and expertise. The organisations offer educational, cultural and social support to their beneficiaries; they signpost to other organisations to help with particular issues such as isolation and language barriers, accessing mainstream services and information on rights and responsibilities.

AIMS The Community Space Partnership common aims are:

1. To empower the Newport refugee and migrant communities in social, economic, environmental and cultural activities through: 

  • Increasing training opportunities for ethnic minority residents
  • Promoting full use of mainstream services in Newport by ethnic minority residents
  • Increasing participation, cohesion and integration, tolerance and partnership working between refugee and migrant minority groups and the wider Newport community

2. To contribute to a fair and just society where ethnic minority citizens are empowered to determine their own lives and, with the wider population, support Newport to becoming a resilient and harmonious place to live work and visit.

3. To support the mission and purpose of the Partnership, member organisations will ensure that their plans, strategies and activities are conducted in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations
