Cynon Youth Forum

Cynon Youth Forum

YEPS are fully committed to supporting young people in RCT to have a voice in their community and make a positive difference to where they live and for those around them. We aim do this with 3 local youth forums in Rhondda, Cynon and Taff that you can now join.

If you are aged 11-25 and live in RCT you can be a part of one of our Youth Forums and work on community projects, support services tackling key issues and receive training that can help with vital skills for the future. More importantly YOU can have YOUR say on what happens where you live and on the key decisions in your area.


What is a youth forum?

A youth forum is run and developed by young people for young people. Youth forums exist to represent the views of young people, giving them the opportunity to be heard on their ideas, opinions and needs. This creates a space where young people can discuss issues, engage with decision makers such as youth workers, governance boards and staff of other organisations, and contribute to improving and developing services for young people.
