A New Youth Parliament for Wales


On 19 October 2016, following a unanimous vote of support from Assembly Members, the Assembly Commission agreed to explore the feasibility of establishing a Welsh Youth Parliament, and the Llywydd, Elin Jones AM, announced her intention to establish a Welsh Youth Parliament.

After working with our External Steering Group Members, we are very excited to announce that the consultation for the youth parliament is LIVE until 30 June 2017!
