EU migrants: What makes Wales my home

September 24th 2020 - Presented by: Jane Hutt Jane Hutt MS Rocio Cifuentes Rocio Cifuentes Claire Thomas Claire Thomas

Around 80,000 people born in the EU live in Wales.

Since moving here many have put down roots, developed a sense of Welsh identity and regard Wales as home, yet, some face hostility.

This webinar shares some of the experiences of EU migrants living in Swansea, including what they like about living in Wales, their shared values and concerns about where they live and how settled they feel, and where they call ‘home’.

This webinar coincidesd with the launch of our new project booklet and includes a keynote address by Jane Hutt, Deputy Minister and Chief Whip.

Some of the key topics covered include:

  • Why people settle in Wales
  • What they like about living in Wales
  • What is important to them and what values they share
  • What makes Wales their home
