group interviews to elicit data. Ethical approval was successfully received from the University.
Findings – Five broad emergent themes were identified: language, knowledge, power, inequalities and
Originality/value – The participants’ sharing of their own experiences developed a feeling of personal
achievement through an understanding in others of their own community and values.
