A recent collaboration between a local social enterprise and the Wales Centre for Behaviour Change, based in Bangor University, has culminated in the launch of an easy-read Impact Report.
Founded over 30 years ago, Antur Waunfawr offers work and training opportunities to individuals with learning difficulties, and also provides support for individuals in their own homes. The impact report shows how Antur increases people’s well-being, by improving the social, environmental and economic aspects of their lives.
To create the report, Antur worked closely with behavioural researchers Elizabeth Woodcock and Hong Chun Tan, and the official launch of the report was led by Professor Jerry Hunter of Bangor University. During the presentation, some of the individuals receiving a service from Antur had the opportunity to address the audience, talk about their work and social lives, and show parts of the report in a touch-screen version.
David John has worked for Antur since the very beginning, and said: “I really enjoyed taking part in the presentation, and talking about my work in the Warws Werdd. The touch-screen version of the report is great. “
Antur’s Chief Executive, Menna Jones: “We are very grateful to the University for working with us, and we are very proud of all individuals who receive a service with us for taking part in the presentation. They made the event a great success.“
