Senedd yr Ifanc (Wrexham Youth Parliament) continues to work hard to tackle the key issues that are important to young people.
It’s the things that are important to you, your groups and schools that they’re looking to address.
The issue that came top in their December 2017 ballot was ‘Prevent and Stop Bullying’. The aim is to reduce the stigma associated with bullying and to raise awareness of it.
258 people voted this their top issue and I think we can agree that it’s massively important.
Here’s where you can help…
The Senedd is now looking to get more detailed information, and to help them do this they’ve developed an online questionnaire for 11-25 year olds.
The survey aims to discover the effects that bullying has on young people and look at ways to prevent bullying from taking place.
They will particularly look at bullying taking place in schools. Key to this will be reducing the stigma attached to bullying and raising awareness.
The questionnaire will be live until November 16 and you’re encouraged to have your say about this very important subject.
Caroline Bennett, Participation Co-Coordinator explains why you should take part:
“The Senedd Yr Ifanc is a great opportunity for young people to get involved in issues brought to us by young people.
“The issue of bullying affects a great number of young people and a way to tackle this is through greater understanding. It’s our young people who can help us understand more about bullying by completing the questionnaire.”
And don’t worry if you’re not tech savvy…paper copies of the questionnaire are available on request.
There’s also a chance to win a £30 voucher of your choice…just leave your email address at the end of the survey to enter!
