Travelling Ahead Regional Forums

In 2014 you told us you wanted more opportunities to meet together so we set up three new Regional Forums around Wales.

The Regional Forums meet at least twice a year and young people are involved in planning the events. The Regional Forums are for you to meet with other young people in your area, have a say and have some fun as well – you say where you would like to meet and what kind of activities and workshops you would like to do – we aim to invite people from your areas – your council or education service for instance –  or Young Wales or your local hate crime officer –  to listen to your views and  give you some information about services or support you might use or need in the future.

Have a look at the links below to see what goes on in your area.
