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.
Since this announcement, we, the Assembly Commission, have been busy working with young people and adults from organisations that work with and/or promote the views and needs of young people in Wales, to develop the key features of a youth parliament for the people of Wales to consider. These representatives have come together to form the Youth Parliament Steering Group (Steering Group) and include members from the following national youth organisations in Wales: Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Youth Cymru, Urdd, Children in Wales, NUS Wales, Wales Observatory for Human and Children’s Rights, CWVYS, Scouts Cymru, GirlGuiding Cymru, Young Farmers Wales, Principal Youth Officer’s Group and CYPAW.
The next step of the journey is to find out what young people, and those professionals who work with young people, think about our proposal to establish a new Welsh Youth Parliament.
