National Forum 2017

Our Ninth National Forum was held on the March 3rd 2017 at Baskerville Hall in Powys again.

This was a fantastic day and a celebration event for Travelling Ahead with all the young people who have been involved over the last four years and their achievements. Our Youth Advisory Group  helped us plan it as always and we were joined by young people from all over south, west and mid Wales as well as staff who supported them.

Julie Morgan AM was with us for the day and we had workshops from Travellers Times, Sherrie Flowers, Yoozer Crafts with Love , Sybil Lee and the PEER Project Community Researchers; stalls from the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Romani Cultural and Arts Company and Swansea’s Children’s Rights Observatory as well as Save the Children Wales’ team. Drop in activities were provided by Lauren at BME Sport Newport  (thank you SEWREC), Nathan Probert Boxing Gym and by Jess at Yoozer.
