Young Wales to consult children and young people on Brexit

Young Wales, the participation initiative at Children in Wales, is consulting with children and young people on Brexit.

The Welsh Government has asked Young Wales to consult with children and young people across Wales to gather their views on the Brexit process.

The Minister for Children, Huw Irranca-Davies wants to ensure he is aware of children and young people’s views on Brexit to feed in and inform Welsh Government discussions.

The work will run from May to September and all the information gathered will be used to inform a final report for the Minister in October 2018.

There are a number of pieces of work to be developed. Detailed information and application forms (where appropriate) can be found on the Children in Wales website using the following links.

You can find more information and application forms on the Children in Wales website.

Young Wales is looking to recruit young people from across Wales for the following roles:

Young People’s Brexit Steering Group.

  1. This group of 12 young people will be responsible for working with Young Wales to develop:
  • A questionnaire for children and young people
  • Develop a workshop to gather the views of young people across Wales.
  • Contribute to social media work.

Young Wales Brexit Workshop Leaders

  1. This group of 15 young people will be trained to deliver Brexit workshops to groups of young people across Wales. Initial training and ongoing support will be provided, and young people will work in groups of three. This group will be asked to travel to training venues across Wales and on occasions may be required to stay away from home overnight, all work will be supported by members of the Young Wales team.

Applications for both groups would be welcomed in Welsh and English, and all the training and online surveys will be delivered in both languages.
