The Amber project has for many years done an amazing work in supporting young people in Cardiff and South Wales who have experience of self-harm. The project provides counselling, practical support, singing, guitar and creative and theatre workshops. An important aspect of Amber is our Constellation group which works with young people 12-25 who identify as trans, non-binary or questioning their gender identity.

For the role of the Project Coordinator of the Amber project, it will include working effectively with other agencies in Cardiff and South Wales including health agencies and local government, supporters and trusts as well as National Staff within Church Army.
