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.
The Welsh Government has produced issued a reminder of the 2011 Child Poverty Strategy following recent requests for information from Participation Workers.
