Young people chose anti-bullying and hate crime as a priority for Young Wales and a result we are setting up a young people’s anti bullying and hate crime network starting with an “Ideas Workshop” to explore the key issues. This network will have direct links to the Welsh Government All Wales Anti Bullying Leadership Group and will be supported by members of the Children in Wales Preventing Bullying Behaviour Group.
Young Wales would like to work with upto 20 young people (11-25 year olds) and are offering places to your young people first. We would like to see 2 young people from each forum or organisation at the Ideas Workshop.
With Hate Crime and Anti-Bullying a priority for Young Wales, we will be working closely with the Welsh Government ahead of Anti-Bullying Week in November. Help us decide on our focus through this short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CY58MDS
Young Wales launched on Friday 27th March with young people from forums across Wales meeting in Newtown to decide their priorities for the year. The day was challenging but positive with young people sharing why particular issues were important to them and their forum. Under the direction of the group we combined some of the topics together before they finalised the six topics as follows:
Cymru Ifanc – Young Wales will be launched as part of a day of activities with young people. We have already been visiting groups across Wales to find out about work, and on March 27th representatives from each forum will meet. They will discuss all the issues and decide on their national priorities for the year.
